Famine Relief

Previous Next

-    The CCCB, in its interfaith appeal letter to support the famine relief in Africa and Yemen declares “Our joint appeal is a unified cry from the heart, with one voice and one message... the insistent call for

peace and the need to protect the vulnerable. The protection and promotion of human dignity are foundational elements of all our faith communities. Willful indifference towards violations against human dignity is always wrong, at all times and in all places.” Parishes have been asked to take up a second collection to support the Famine Relief Fund.
-    Individual donations can also be made directly on the diocesan website:

-    All donations made before June 30 will be matched by the federal government. Please continue to pray for all those suffering from hunger and the humanitarian workers working in the region.
