Meet Dinia, the face of Project Compassion 2017, which launched on Wednesday! From a life of poverty as the sole-provider for her family in the Philippines, hers is a story of hope, perseverance and healing, helped along by Caritas Australia.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=828oyxrAiYM

By donating to Project Compassion, you can help vulnerable people like Dinia have a better future. 


The theme of Project Compassion 2017 is Love Your Neighbour.

Across the six weeks of Lent, we invite you to take a moment to reflect and consider the lives of those like Dinia, and to give what you can.

Alongside Dinia’s story, you can discover five more stories demonstrating how love for our neighbours can transform lives.

So take a moment, get involved, fundraise or donate to show love for your neighbours around the world.

May these stories encourage you in your faith, and strengthen your commitment to prayer, almsgiving and social justice this Lent.

Yours sincerely

Paul O'Callaghan

Chief Executive Officer
