Aylesbury Circle – Give Water, Give Life

Aylesbury cateniansThe Aylesbury Circle of the Catenian Association raised an amazing £1664.11 for their Centenary project – Give Water, Give Life – providing much needed water supplies to communities in the drought riven areas of Zimbabwe.  Accepting the cheque from Past President John Pettit, Diocesan Manager Frank Sudlow noted how the funds were already being used to give life to communities who were struggling to adapt to the changing climate.  Northern Zimbabwe, where the rains would fall regularly twice a year, had not seen rain since last August, leaving crops dying in the field and the people struggling to feed themselves.  In many parts of the country the only food available comes from the World Food Programme, often distributed through CAFOD’s church partners.

With the support from the Catenians, communities are able to get clean water to drink, and water to irrigate their crops, particularly fruit and vegetables.  This makes all the difference in ensuring the enjoy a healthy diet.
