For Lent for Life 2022 – Week #3

Story of Hope from Bangladesh


This week, CRS Rice Bowl introduces us to a family in BANGLADESH who lives in a low-lying area that’s prone to flooding. By participating in CRS funded programs, Noornobi learned how to protect his land from high tides and how to farm using organic fertilizers. He also raises chickens and ducks to sell at the market. With extra profits, he has been able to buy a larger home for his family and pay for private education for his siblings.

To view the second Story of Hope, Bangladesh – visit the CRS website where you can also find tasty meatless recipes including this one for dahl made of lentils and tasty seasonings.


CRS Rice Bowl offers resources for each of the 40 days of Lent. For more Lenten activities to do with your family, visit the CRS website. Or click on the resources below.
