For Lent for Life 2022 – Week #4

Story of Hope from Rwanda


This week, CRS Rice Bowl introduces us to a village in RWANDA struggling with malnutrition. After Gloriose attended a CRS-funded program that taught her to prepare healthy balanced meals, she was able to feed her children by growing her own kitchen garden. With additional help from CRS, she was also able to obtain a business loan that helped her make enough profit to send her kids to school.  Gloriose says she is grateful for the opportunity to be a working woman with a voice.

To view the third Story of Hope, Rwanda – visit the CRS website. During this fourth Friday of Lent, consider preparing a meatless dish from Rwanda.  To view the recipe for a vegetable stew with collard greens, click here.
