T h e V i n e S e p t e m b e r 2 0 1 4 P a g e 1 1 Kate van den Bosch visiting a school in Cerro Pando, Nicaragua. My grandmother would have loved how the gift she left CAFOD in her will is transforming lives in the world’,s poorest communities. When my grandma died in 1//4, she left a gift to CAFOD in her will. In 1/01, I joined CAFOD on a trip to Nicaragua to see how gifts like hers were being used to change lives. I was amazed and inspired by everything I saw. Whether providing essential medicines, helping children go to school or making sure families can access clean water, CAFOD supports local people to transform their communities. I know my grandmother would have loved to see how much her gift is achieving. I know she would have loved to inspire you to include CAFOD in your will too. My grandmother would have loved this ad. For more information, visit: cafod.org.uk/legacy CAFOD is a member of Your Catholic Legacy. “,Grandma didn’,t talk about her faith a great deal, but through her support of CAFOD, she put that faith into action.", Leaving a legacy to CAFOD is a very special way to ensure your Catholic values live on.
