Global Solidarity

“A consistent theme of Catholic social teaching is the option or love of preference for the poor. Today, this preference has to be expressed in worldwide dimensions, embracing the immense numbers of the hungry, the needy, the homeless, those without medical care, and those without hope.” Solicitudo Rei Socialis (On Social Concern), Pope John Paul II, 1987

In the developing world, more than 1.2 billion people currently live below the international poverty line, earning less than $1 per day (Human Development Report 2003, Millennium Development Goals: A compact among nations to end human poverty, United Nations Development Programme Human Development Report, 2003)
