Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California).

Their work goes beyond faith, because it focuses on helping the most helpless of people in the region like children.

“We work with everyone because children need to learn and need to have at least some hope for a better future. The basic necessities like agriculture, education and reconstruction in moments of humanitarian help are our priorities.”

Rebuilding the Holy Land means rebuilding the lives of so many people who lack basic necessities like education, water and food.

The noble work of these NGO’s is providing infrastructure, culture and education to people who have much to contribute to society and the rebuilding process of their countries.
