Community gets behind Project Compassion

by Sally-Anne Hurley | Feb 27, 2018

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.

    It is very good how so many people are supporting Project Compassion it is a great cause. We are supporting Project Compassion at my school as well. So far we have raised over $600 and I am very excited to see how the money we raised will help support your cause. Thanks for being a wonderful group of people, you should be proud of what you stand for and who you are. Thanks, from a Year 8 student

    It's do good that so many schools are getting involved with the Caritas Australia program. Our school support this and every year it is a tradition for every homeroom to bring in as many coins as possible then we make a coin line and each easter we have am easter raffle and all the money from the coin line and easter raffle goes straight to Caritas. It's such a good organisation and so many more schools should get involved.
