Share the Journey

Lent is a time of preparation and introspection. This year, Development and Peace – Caritas Canada is adding its voice to those of Pope Francis and Caritas Internationalis and is inviting Canadians to share the journey with the 68.5 million forced migrants in the world today.

Forced migration

No one should be forced to flee their homes

Never have so many people fled war, persecution, natural disasters, extreme poverty, and development megaprojects.

By taking action and fundraising with Development and Peace, you can make a real difference.
