Haiti to host 3rd Caritas Encounter for Latin America and the Caribbean

.- From March 19-23 Haiti will host the 3rd Continental Meeting of Caritas Social Ministry and the 16th Latin American and Caribbean Congress, which will address issues such as development and democracy, reconciliation and peace, and migration.

Father Francisco Hernandez, Regional Coordinator of Caritas and organizer of the event, said preparatory meetings for the encounter have been taking place and discussions have been held with other world and regional organizations.

He said the different proposals will serve as the foundation for designing the next regional plan.

Father Hernandez stressed that the choice of Haiti, which is one of the poorest nations in the region, as host of the event, “is a sign that will help us to think about the objective and focus of the work of Caritas for the coming years.”

“This is the spirit that is motivating delegates, who will come to this country to strengthen their ties and to grow in the communication of the actions of solidarity that being carried out, journeying together with impoverished people and communities,” he stated.
