Project Compassion

Caritas Australia’s annual Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal is an extraordinary, ongoing demonstration of the faith, love and generosity of the Catholic community and caring supporters throughout Australia to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.

Project Compassion demonstrates how love for our neighbours can transform lives this year.

Starting on Ash Wednesday, 1st March, we are sharing stories from people in Philippines, Timor Leste, Indigenous Australia, Vietnam, and Fiji.
