Poverty and the dignity of the person

By Leela Ramdeen

Chair, CCSJ & Director, CREDI

“Without a solution to the problems of the poor, we will not solve the problems of the world. We need projects, mechanisms and processes to implement better distribution of resources, from the creation of new jobs to the integral promotion of those who are excluded.” -Pope Francis

We are one human family, and we have a responsibility to stand in solidarity with the poor and vulnerable if we are to fulfil God’s command: “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”
