We have gone through a 2020 that was deeply marked by the crisis brought on by COVID-19.  Despite the limitations owing to the sanitary measures and protocols, work for the promotion and protection of human rights has continued.  This pandemic has further highlighted the need for greater solidarity and engagement to build a society more just, more humane.

We, at CCIG, thank our partners and members for their continuous support, eagerness and creativity.  This Christmas, may we let the Child Jesus challenge and inspire us in order to respond “with a new vision of fraternity and social friendship that will not remain at the level of words.” (Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti).  As we welcome 2021, may we embrace it with hope, courage and compassion.

The CCIG Secretariat will be closed from Thursday, 24 December 2020 and will reopen Wednesday, 6 January 2021.
