CAFOD Walk Against Hunger

 

CAFOD Walk Against Hunger Lenten Challenge

 

Walk against Hunger is a challenge that takes place over Lent. It’s a chance for you to transform your life while changing someone else’s.

 

Cover 200k your way - 5k every day for 40 days, or in one go with a group - on your own, or as part of a team.

 

However you take part, let's give hunger its marching orders!

 

St. George’s are delighted to play our part by holding a Walk Against Hunger activity packed afternoon on Thursday March 10th.

 

Children are asked to donate £2 to raise vital funds to help the world’s most vulnerable women, men and children. It could help to bring healthy food to those who are hungry, clean, fresh water to those who are thirsty, or shelter to those who don’t have a home.

 

£12 can buy the basic ingredients for a new mum to make sesame seed paste for her malnourished baby

£20 can pay for expert food and healthcare classes for new mums and dads in rural communities

£200 can feed ten malnourished children sesame paste for a week, helping them grow big and strong

£1,000 can provide hardy seeds to a whole farming community throughout a planting season
