This Harvest Fast Day, throughout England and Wales parishioners will be listening to nine-year-old Gift’s story and about the challenges his family had to face.
Pumpkin leaves – for every meal, that’s all Gift and his family had to eat. When Gift needed us most, CAFOD was there.
We helped his family set up a vegetable garden, and made sure they had the seeds, tools and water they needed to grow nutritious food.
Today they have enough food and they sell their extra vegetables for a profit – which gives them hope for the future.
If you’re giving a talk this Harvest Fast Day and haven’t done one before, why not use some of Ben’s top tips in the video on this page?
