Will you join Father John Cooke in signing Salina’s letter in your parish?

Following Fr John and Oscar’s Big Lent walk for CAFOD, he’s leading a parish action to remain in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world, to help them adapt for sustainable livelihoods and care for our precious God-given environment.

For generations, small-scale farmers have freely swapped and shared a wide variety of seeds. But new laws supported by the World Bank are being introduced that limit what small farmers can do with their seeds. Salina, a small-scale farmer in Bangladesh, has written a letter to the World Bank calling for the rights of small-scale farmers to be protected.

Following very generous fundraising during Lent, parish collections, and sponsored walks, for communities overseas to access what they need in the climate crisis,  we also want to tackle some of the causes of global food poverty. 

Could you help your parish support Salina by co-signing her letter? We’ve made things as simple as possible for you and your parish to support Salina in her efforts. So far five Bishops have signed – could your parishioners add their names too? Order Salina’s letter for your parish
