Communism has scarred Cuban society. Teaching the Catholic faith and Christian values to children is giving them hope, as well as spiritual and human formation. With your help, we can supply 10,000 copies of the New Testament to Havana.
We promised to help 29 Religious Literature Projects. We still need 252,250.04€
Cuba is still marked by conservative communist structures, and due to the economic situation in the country, most of the people live a simple life in impoverished conditions. In schools, there is no human or religious formation. ““When I realized that the children, teenagers, and young people in Cuba had a gap in their formation, I decided to contribute to the Catechesis Pastoral of my community,” said Diana Calderon from Santa Isabel de las Lajas. Teaching Catholic faith and Christian values is a way to provide human and spiritual formation. In a society where many families are not practicing the faith, children become little evangelists. Religious publications, such as Child’s Bible and YOUCAT, enable the message of the Gospel to reach many people. The diocese of Havana has requested 10,000 copies of the New Testament to carry out their pastoral work.
The YOUCAT is a catechism book, made specifically for the evangelization of teenagers and young people. With your help, we can distribute 6.000 copies in Swahili to young people in Tanzania and Kenya.
The Church in Malawi is reaching out to the children and teenagers. They aim to plant the seed of faith in their hearts, for Christian values to grow. With your help, we can provide 4.000 copies of the Child’s Bible in Tumbuka.
In a Muslim country, such as Pakistan, catholic publications are essential not only to spread the Word of God and to teach Christian values but also to strengthen the faith. With your support, we can subsidize the printing of the Catechism in Urdu.
