The CAFOD Middlesbrough team and Lisa McBride, one of our Education volunteers,  were recently welcomed to St Augustine’s Primary School, Coulby Newham by Head Teacher Martin Macaulay, where we helped the children to come to an understanding of the difficulties faced by people overseas, through using interactive games and activities. The children got really involved and recognised the injustice that exists in the world. Showing a highly developed sense of justice, the children demonstrated how they would redistribute the resources of health, wealth, education and food more fairly among all of the  people who live in the world – by taking from those who have more than they need and giving it to those without enough! They could teach some leaders a lesson! The school is very generous to CAFOD and it was a real pleasure to spend time with the staff and children.
