Livison joined CAFOD Community Participation Coordinator for Wrexham Diocese, Colette Byrne, and CAFOD Education Volunteer, Vin Brennan for a visit to St Winefride’s in Holywell before the school finished for half term.
All school children participated in an assembly, which taught them about children in Zimbabwe who are a similar age to themselves but may not receive the food they need to grow up to be healthy and strong. Livison shared with them some information about schools in Zimbabwe.
The Year 6 class were lucky enough to spend more time with Livison, as they played a game called ‘Life without taps’, where they learned just how difficult it is for some people to be able to access water in poorer countries, as well as some of the obstacles people may come across.
The day was so enjoyable for all involved, CAFOD’s Colette, said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed bring our visitor from Zimbabwe to see the children at St Winefride’s. Its great working with them and they love learning about CAFOD’s work, and how their support through Lent activities, is helping other children, just like them.”
