Preferential Option for the Poor

What is justice for the poor?

Caring for those who are less well off poor is everyone’s responsibility. Preferential care should be shown to vulnerable and marginalised people, whose needs and rights are given special attention in God’s eyes.

Our programs aim to reach the poorest and most marginalised people, especially those living in remote areas where there are few resources.
