CAFOD Launches Lent Walk for Water Challenge

Monday 1st February 2021

CAFOD has launched its Walk for Water Lent challenge and is calling on people to walk 10,000 steps a day, every day for 40 days.

They are calling on us all to go the distance this Lent and help to end water poverty

Abdella is 23 and he has big dreams. He dreams of starting a small business. He dreams of starting a family. He dreams of having his own home.

He dreams of the day he won’t have to walk ten hours to get water.

Abdella lives in Afar, Ethiopia – one of the hottest places on earth. Like hundreds of people in the area, he spends most of the day walking to get water for his family to drink.

He knows that if there was water near his home, his family wouldn’t have to worry any more about getting enough to stay alive. And he could start on the dreams he has for the rest of his life.

Your fundraising could help CAFOD to help people like Abdella this Lent.
