Since 1987 this program has sought to increase solidarity with
the most abandoned sectors of society through the sale of
coupons which can be exchanged for a quantity of food,
books, medicine or construction materials.
|«The movements cooperate with the dioceses and the parishes in the formation of lay people who are convinced about Christ, motivated, committed to their faith and eager to share with others the transforming gospel message».|
The funds raised by this
project go to social projects around the world. Support in
the form of cash is sent in from outside the
country and used to purchase local goods. In this way
the economic development of the area is promoted, the cost
of shipping and storage is avoided, and food is kept
This program emphasizes the need for the recipients
to help out the community in return for what they
have received. 52,000 families have been aided on a stable
basis in Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and Spain.
