in the Sahel region during a food crisis, of which CCODP was a part.
The Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (CCODP) is currently in its largest fundraiser of the year, called Share Lent. Part of this campaign is a Canada-wide collection on March 17.

John Gabor, B.C.-Yukon animator for CCODP, says "It's not just about money, but just as much about a time to reflect."

"Everything is focused on human rights," said Gabor. "It's the whole basis of the organization."
