Advent Appeal: Climate crisis in Bangladesh
Cyclones and floods have become more frequent in Nomita’s community in southwest Bangladesh. She and her neighbours are living with the devastating effects of the climate crisis.
You can help people like Nomita adapt to the effects of cyclones and floods with a gift to CAFOD’s Advent Appeal.
Nomita never gives up. She works as hard as anyone else to farm her land, bring up her children, make sure her daughter finishes her education and to maintain the home.
"I have experience working more or less in all sectors. I can work inside the house and can also do a man’s job. I think that I have no other way, I have to work hard and earn for myself."
Please give this Advent to help more hardworking people around the world to adapt to the climate crisis.
