Item description for Solidarity Will Transform the World: Stories of Hope from Catholic Relief Services by Jeffry Odell Korgen...
Overview The incredible story of what can happen when the resources of the Catholic Church come together with the resources-both spiritual and physical-of people living in poverty around the world. The values of solidarity and human dignity incorporated in Catholic social teaching come to life through the stories of people served by Catholic Relief Services. Through CRS programs of micro-credit in Mexico and India, men and women develop their skills and establish small businesses that create jobs for others-from apple farming through brick-making. In Zambia, people learn how to become caregivers for those with hiv/aids; and in Rwanda, the land of the Hutu and Tutsi, people learn to become peacemakers. In Nicaragua, farmers gain hope and a stake in their future as they learn to produce organic coffee for the Fair Trade Exchange.

An inspirational collection of true anecdotes Apr 3, 2008
Solidarity Will Transform the World: Stories of Hope From Catholic Relief Services is an inspirational collection of true anecdotes about the people served by Catholic Relief Services. CRS programs of microcredit in Mexico and India have helped men and women create small businesses and jobs for their fellow countrymen. CRS trains people to become caregivers to those with HIV/AIDS in Zambia, and peacemakers in Rwanda; the production of Fair Trade Exchange coffee brings hope for prosperity to Nicaragua. A handful of black-and-white photographs illustrate this uplifting testimony to how religious charity can have a positive effect upon the world at large, literally helping people to help themselves as well as fostering the spiritual rewards of faith.
