Today there will be a collection for CAFOD Fast Day. For this, we are standing with Edelmira, a farmer in El Salvador, as she works to sustain her family with good crops and harvests. With your help, CAFOD is giving her fruit trees, training and strong seeds. Your generous support will mean that more farmers around the world will be able to support their families, now and into the future. Please give generously.
