The new CAFOD campaign ‘Act on poverty’ was officially launched in Liverpool in mid July, complete with a life-sized No. 10 Downing Street door! Scores and scores of CAFOD supporters came together to brave the lashing rain to join in the fun. Scrumptious scones with strawberries were also served. Tom Onyango, a CAFOD staff member who works with CAFOD partners in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, joined us for the launch to speak about CAFOD’s work in East Africa. Tom is the Programme Officer in the Nairobi Office and has been involved in the work around the Post-Election violence in Kenya, issues around violence caused by the scarcity of resources (particularly in respect of drought affected areas of Northern Kenya) as well as projects designed to bring about reconciliation and understanding in urban slum areas. As you can see from the pictures, everyone had a great…but wet time.
