Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD)
CCHD helps us fulfill the appeal of Pope Benedict XVI in his 2009 World Day of Peace Message:
“I extend to every disciple of Christ and to every person of good will a warm invitation to expand their hearts to meet the needs of the poor and to take whatever practical steps are possible in order to help them.”
– 2009 World Day of Peace Message: Fighting Poverty to Build Peace, #15.
