CAFOD WALK FOR WATER

Walk for Water is the only Lent challenge you need: 10,000 steps a day – done your way. Every day. For 40 days. Go the distance this Lent and help to end water poverty. 

You don’t have to get tied in a knot about how to do it: whether you hop it; skip it; slide it; run it; jump it; dance it; stamp it; stomp it. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just as long as you put your heart and soul into it.

Sign up now, raise money and do something different to fight poverty.

Watch Abdella's Video

Abdella is 23 and he has big dreams. He dreams of starting a small business. He dreams of starting a family. He dreams of having his own home.

He dreams of the day he won’t have to walk ten hours to get water.

Abdella lives in Afar, Ethiopia – one of the hottest places on earth. Like hundreds of people in the area, he spends most of the day walking to get water for his family to drink. 

He knows that if there was water near his home, his family wouldn’t have to worry any more about getting enough to stay alive. And he could start on the dreams he has for the rest of his life.
