    This year Caritas celebrates its 70th anniversary since the first congress of Catholic Charities held in Rome in 1951.  One of the events to mark this anniversary is the Caritas worldwide campaign “Caring for Creation, Caring for the Human Person” which will run from the end of 2021 to the end of 2024.  The purpose of the campaign is to mobilize Caritas members, and indeed all of society, to participate in the programs to take care of the earth and of its people.  In particular, this campaign was launched in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still causing difficulties for many countries.  The pandemic causes confusion and death, but it is also an opportunity for us to realize the need for more solidarity with each other and with nature.  Solidarity with man and solidarity with the natural world are two inseparable requirements.  In his letter to introduce the campaign, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, President of Caritas International, wrote that “now is the time for Caritas organizations to come together in a fraternal spirit, to work towards an ecological transformation and a way to promote integral human development.”
