Project Compassion was well supported in parishes, schools, and communities across Queensland in 2016. Here are some great examples of our passionate supporters and their fundraising activities this year. (Warning: lots of food based ideas ... you might get hungry!!)

And on behalf of the many communities around the world that your Project Compassion donations support, we would like to say a big THANK YOU!!
