Caritas updates from around the world
Caritas responds to the needs clearly expressed by the beneficiaries themselves. In the tent at the Mahama Refugee Camp, a “family reunion” is underway to exchange ideas on the project, their satisfaction, their needs, questions and ideas.
Solidarity finds a solid foundation in God. There is no love of God without loving the other. And God's mercy invites us to act. Caritas Krakow is partly responsible for the preparation of meals for pilgrims. Caritas volunteers will also assist disabled people in their area.
Giving the Syrian refugees something to hope for is a key. Caritas provides a space for children to play, do art, make friends and even garden.
