Fr. Delahanty’s Trip to Kenya with CRS

September 2006

Compiled by Maggie Ringe


CRS Social Justice Trips take participants to the third world to show them first hand the situation there and how CRS is working to aid the people. In return participants must share what they have seen and learned with their community when they return. In this spirit Fr. Pat Delahanty has very kindly shared his pictures and stories from his recent trip to Kenya.

CRS Participants start their trip with a orientation session


  • One of the projects the CRS team participated in was creating a sand dam water filter so that the local people could have clean and safe drinking water. The following pictures are from this project.
