Why is Miriam Walking For Water?

Miriam is a CAFOD Campaign Volunteer Coordinator for the West side of the Diocese of Southwark. Yesterday she started the Walk for Water and she is telling us about it.

Why is Cafod’s Walk for Water Campaign important to you?

Miriam started the Walk for Water to end water poverty

When I read about Abdella, I knew I had to do something.  Hearing about the difference access to safe water made to Hagos’ life reinforced it. The idea of doing it for Lent was very appealing.  I don’t normally like asking people directly for money but the Just Giving Page made it so much easier.  I enjoy walking so it struck me as a win/win situation.

Where will you be walking?

I am happy to walk anywhere but in Feltham we have lots of green spaces around us – Hanworth Park, Crane Park, Hounslow Heath, Donkey Wood.

How will you be doing the steps e.g. walking, dancing, running?

A combination of walking and housework.  It never ceases to amaze me how many steps I do just doing housework.

You can still take part : Join the Walk for Water

Why do you support Cafod as a charity?

Cafod are there for the long haul.  They don’t look for quick fix solutions.  Also, behind every project is the idea “Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day – teach a man to fish, you feed him for life”.

Every step taken over Lent’s 40 days has the power to truly transform lives.  

  • Every step taken over Lent’s 40 days has the power to truly transform lives.    
  • £33 could help to mend a community’s broken water pump    
  • £60 could buy a bike for a water mechanic so they can travel to mend a remote community’s water pump    
  • £750 could buy a water supply for an entire community
