Lent Fast Day – Life after the storm


Lent Fast Day is on 27 February 2015

Life after the storm

Rebuilding your life after a devastating storm can seem an impossible task. But it was what Kyin Nu and her husband had to do after a cyclone ripped through their community. They lost their business, the food they had worked so hard to produce and worst of all, two of their daughters were killed.

Cyclone Nargis was the strongest cyclone ever to hit Myanmar (formerly named Burma). Over 150,000 people died, and 2.4 million were affected. Half of Kyin Nu’s village were killed. As with many storms, the poorest people suffered the most.

It has been a long, hard struggle for Kyin Nu, but your donations to CAFOD have made a real difference to the community. By planting trees, providing animals and paying people to rebuild roads and protective embankments, we have helped Kyin Nu and the rest of her community get back on their feet.

Donate now and double the difference* you make to people like Kyin Nu
