75th anniversary of Luxembourg Caritas
The creation of Caritas Luxembourg as a federation of Christian-inspired socio-charity organisations goes back to the year 1932.
Today, the Caritas Luxembourg Federation includes 18 non-profit associations and foundations which are active in the social and humanitarian sector. It seeks to promote human solidarity and quality social work, in Luxembourg and abroad, in support of children, families, the elderly, refugees, and the homeless.
Zukunft schenken !
”Zukunft schenken! – Partager l’avenir!” (Share the Future): this is the theme which Caritas intends to use to celebrate its anniversary. An organisation which deals with all aspects of human distress, Caritas has always been guided by a vision of a future open to all – a future which gives and shares in concrete and durable deeds. In light and transparent tones, the special postage stamp evokes this shared future, restored hope and respect in front of the fragility of human adventure.
A festive programme
For the entire year of 2007, the anniversary will be celebrated by cultural, sporting, and social events. A special ”75 Joër Caritas - Zukunft schenken” fund, named after the founder of Caritas Luxembourg Mgr. Frédéric Mack, makes an appeal to the generosity of everyone so that social and humanitarian Caritas aid will continue to meet the challenges of the world of tomorrow.
