Vatican foundation for Latin America to fund nearly 200 projects

August 05, 2010

The Populorum Progressio Foundation’s administrative council has voted to distribute nearly $2.1 million to 186 projects in 20 Latin American nations. Funding for these projects comes from the Italian bishops’ conference. Founded by Venerable John Paul II in 1992 and headed by Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes, the foundation assists impoverished communities in Latin America.

In addition, the foundation approved funding for ten projects in earthquake-ravaged Haiti. The funds for these projects come from donations from the faithful.
