Catholic Womens League and Nigeria


In January I was invited to visit the  CWL  at St Clares in Aylesbury to share with them my experiences of Nigeria.

It was my first meeting with this group of ladies who hold a long established tradition of supporting CAFOD, from its earliest days.

I was delighted to be able to show them my slides of life in Nigeria and the work of CAFOD there providing access to clean water and much needed health care.

Secretary Pat Chesterton  said after the visit ‘It brought home to us exactly how giving on Family Fast Days is used to help our  brother and sisters less well off than ourselves, and especially something we take for granted – clean water’.

Many thanks to the CWL for their hospitality and their continued support.
