Speaking to Catholic News Service, Cardinal Tagle said “For this project, Caritas Greece has only one paid person. All the others are volunteers, taking turns to serve food, to sort out donations of clothing and coming here to spend the day or evening with the refugees — that is Caritas. Caritas is Caritas because of those simple people who give of themselves.”

Statement on the Occasion of World Food Day 2015

It is now time to build on our last year’s Global Action Week of the “One Human Family, Food for All” campaign, when we pushed the European Parliament to recognise the right to food as a basic human right. This year the momentum should be even greater. Less than two weeks ago world leaders unanimously agreed on signing new Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals are applicable to all countries of the world, according to the principle of common and shared responsibility.
