In Sebeya, in the north of Ethiopia, drought threatens hundreds of families who rely on farming for survival. The community is ﬁghting back. Local people are building reservoirs and water pipes to keep the ﬁelds green and improve the harvests. Join Connect2: Ethiopia to stand with farming families as they struggle to overcome drought and hunger.
CAFOD’s Ethiopia Evening will take place on 3 June in Waterloo, where you can meet some of the people CAFOD work with in Ethiopia. They will tell us about CAFOD’s work bringing clean water to the community of Sebeya and how parishes here can link with the community and help them in the future through CAFOD’s Connect 2 scheme.
