Format: Paperback
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.

This book gave me insight into the activities of Catholic Relief Services. I was very impressed with the effectiveness of the program and how recipients shared their success with others.
The book was thoroughly researched, well written and increased my understanding of how people can succeed with the proper help and have hope in the future.
An excellent book!

This is a wonderful book. It has a variety of stories from around the world about Catholic Relief Services and how they help people to get out of poverty and to deal with violence. The stories are not "heart-warming," but rather very real. I really appreciated this book.

I had to read this for a required course at my Jesuit college. I am not Catholic, but I really found the book to be very enlightening just the same. Overall, a worthwhile read for the open-minded.
