In support of the world’s poor, including millions in our immediate region, thousands of school children, teachers, churches and community leaders across Australia are putting their compassion into action, during Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion.
Right now the Government is writing a long term plan for Australia’s foreign policy; and you have the chance to have your say. With our world facing the challenges of conflict, forced migration, climate and poverty, Australia can and must do more to be a better global citizen. But it’s up to us.
Running each year throughout Lent, Project Compassion is Caritas Australia’s annual fundraising and awareness-raising appeal. It links thousands of Australians to the women, children and men most vulnerable to poverty and injustice, who are rich in the eyes of Jesus.
Hope is one of humanity’s most precious aspirations. It can transform lives and bring joy. Around the world the need for hope is on display in many poor and vulnerable communities, and there is no better time to reflect on this than at Christmas.
