Thank you from Hilary Leacock

Lent is now over and we have had
the joy of celebrating Easter.

So, as one of the CAFOD volunteers,
I would like to thank all those who
very kindly donated to CAFOD and who sponsored me on my walk for water.

Your support will help towards installing
solar powered water pumps in villages
in Ethiopia including the one where Abdela lives so that they can have clean safe water to drink and water to irrigate their land.

Thank you so much.

Hilary and Edie the Dog.
