Lent is observed during the forty days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a time of reflection and preparation leading up to the remembrance and celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus. As we journey through Lent, we will be reflecting on the theme of ‘Shared Humanity’. As Jesus lived on earth as a man, he shared our humanity. We share humanity with each person, therefore we are connected. As we share humanity we can show compassion.
Throughout CBM’s Lent Series, we follow Stevie’s reflections and find inspiration through stories of shared humanity like Khaleda’s.
Khaleda is paralysed from the waist down. As a young girl her neighbours thought she was a curse on her family. Khaleda is now a community leader. She advocates for the inclusion of people with disabilities and for the rights of women and girls. Khaleda fights to stop child marriage, to end violence against women and to end the dowry system.
