Share with your parish the inspirational story of a mother and her family surviving against the odds and the amazing work of those who helped them.
Family Fast Day is on Friday 6 October.
Come together as a parish, so that families like Meera's can get help from doctors and other local experts when they need it most.
Dr Nasha’s mobile medical clinic gets life-saving help to where it’s needed most, fast – so when her team arrived in Meera’s village after it had been destroyed by flooding, she rushed to the clinic to get her children the treatment they needed.
Thank you for all your support!
Get involved this Family Fast Day
Sharing Meera's story by speaking at Mass, supporting a CAFOD collection in your parish, and holding a 'Gather Together' event, will mean families like Meera's can get expert help when they need it most.
