Daughters of Charity at the UN

The Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul work at the United Nations to influence policies that affect people who suffer from poverty, injustice, or exclusion. Their services lead them to get involved in struggles such as the lack of housing, human trafficking, the eradication of poverty, indigenous concerns, climate change, migration, etc. Like the Community, the United Nations is commit to “leave no one behind”. Through this series of monthly documents, we hope to show the links between the expectations of the United Nations, the Community and the Church on essential themes, and to stimulate reflection or action on these.

We cannot be Silent!

This booklet offers an opportunity to reflect on the UN in the context of our call as Daughters of Charity. My hope is that it offers a roadmap as we pray, reflect and plan on our General Assembly. We will do this in the light of the Gospel and gift of the Charism given to us by St. Vincent and Louise. I believe our founders would agree “We cannot be Silent.”
