In this Lenten season we are proposing something new to the women of WUCWO: to make a concrete charitable offering to help the most suffering women in Africa. We invite you to participate in solidarity in this Campaign of Prayer and Fundraising to carry out the Observatory in Africa, one of the more needy regions of the world, and thus:
• to highlight and give visibility to the most suffering women, the hardships they endure and the wounds inflicted to their dignity;
• to give these women the opportunity to reflect on themselves, their feelings, sufferings and dreams; and
• to allow them to speak freely, to be heard and to discover and value their great resources; all this in order to find together, inspire, participate and promote in the Church, governments and society, solutions to their sufferings that take into account their great values, fortitude and capabilities.
This campaign also marks this year’s WUCWO Day, on May 13, 2022, and will continue thereafter. It aims to respond in a Christian way to the worsening situation of the most vulnerable women in the region due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the devastating effects of climate change.
Let us weave together, with our resilience, a “spiritual, moral and concrete network... that will allow us to go out to meet the women who suffer most and soothe their wounds.” Thank you in advance for your generosity. May the Lord “give you back a hundredfold.”
Go to the existential peripheries with freedom of heart!
