Project Compassion Begins_26th February 2020


Join Project Compassion this Lent to help end poverty and transform lives.


This Lent, your support can deliver emergency and humanitarian aid to people living in poverty around the world.

Project Compassion

On Ash Wednesday, Caritas Australia, the international aid and development agency of the Catholic Church, launches its annual Project Compassion appeal – one of Australia’s largest humanitarian fundraising and awareness raising campaigns.

 

Project Compassion runs through the six weeks of Lent.  It brings together communities across the country in solidarity with the world’s poor to eradicate poverty and help build a world of hope.  Money raised through Project Compassion goes towards Caritas Australia’s humanitarian and long-term development programs in countries across Africa, Asia, the Pacific and Australia’s First Peoples.  In 2018, more than $10.8 million was donated to Project Compassion.
