Join in Family Fast Day this Harvest!
9 September 2019
"No child should be attacked getting water to drink"
This Harvest we hear from 14-year-old Fabiano about the danger he faced on the long walk to collect water in the dark.
Now that a solar powered pump has been installed in his village, Fabiano can get water safely, easily and have time and energy for school.
There are many more children who still need our help and who are risking their safety and missing school to get water. Help us this Harvest to reach more children and communities this Harvest!
Please join us this Family Fast Day in prayer, fasting and giving to support all our projects with the world's poorest people.
Get ready for Harvest Fast Day on Friday 4 October
Please use this parish guide and resources and share Fabiano's story with your parish.
