Fast Day


The first Millennium Development Goal seeks to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.  However, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation there are over 925 million people suffering from chronic hunger. The Redemptorists in Africa & Madagascar are committed to tackling the problems of food and livelihood insecurity through their mission projects and responded to the crisis in east Africa where drought led to famine.


You can support the work of the Redemptorists in Africa & Madagascar and show solidarity with those affected by food insecurity by getting involved in our Fast Day.  All you have to do is sign up for our 12 or 24 hour fast and then get your friends and family to sponsor your efforts.
