This year, I am again participating in ThinkFAST, a 25-hour educational fundraising fast at my parish in support of the work of Development and Peace.

By participating in Thinkfast on February 23-24, 2018, I stand in solidarity with those in the Global South who need our support, both through financial support to projects they are leading, and through a greater understanding of the structures that perpetuate poverty and injustice. In one day, we will take a stand against oppression and directly support programs in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East that bring about peace, justice, and development.

Development and Peace is an organization that is making a real difference in the world! Their work is aimed at ending poverty and hunger in the Global South, where populations suffer the most from injustice.

In Sierra Leone, for instance, Development and Peace is helping people like Sahr Komba who was born blind. His disability left him marginalized and forced him to beg for a living. Development and Peace is working with a local organization in Sierra Leone to empower people like Sahr to develop their skills and talents so that they can earn a real income. Now Sahr can afford food for his family and send his children to school.

I am asking for your support so that we can change the world together! Making a donation to Development and Peace is a wonderful opportunity for you to help a just world to take root! It is a simple way to make a huge impact in the lives of so many of our brothers and sisters who are suffering in the Global South.

I appreciate your support - God bless.
