Caritas Australia would like to thank all our wonderful supporters for getting behind Project Compassion 2018 so far!

Once again, so many schools, parishes and individuals showed their support for our annual Lenten Appeal earlier this month by getting involved in many launch events across the country, celebrating the theme of 'A Just Future'.

While we are only two weeks into Project Compassion 2018, we are already very humbled by your generosity.

We would also like to thank the many of you who have welcomed our wonderful Project Compassion speakers into your schools and parishes. Our international guest speakers, Father Charles Dittmeier, who works with the Cambodia Deaf Development Program, Janak Sharma from Caritas Nepal, and Psyche Mae, our Philippines Project Compassion story, have been travelling across Australia the last few weeks, and have been humbled by your response to their inspiring stories.
