Harvest briefing in Christchurch

Many thanks to our CAFOD parish volunteers who came to our Harvest Fast day briefing at St Joseph’s Centre Christchurch on Saturday 9th September. It was great to see so many of you there and to explore how CAFOD’s’ partner Solidaity CVX has been supporting farmers like Edelmira and Martir by providing them with native seeds. We heard about how different farming techniques and growing a variety of fruit has helped Edelmira and Martir feed their family and enabled them to become self-sufficient. Please help us this Harvest to enable other families to lift themselves out of poverty.
