Each month, CGI,s COMMISSION FOR INTERNATIONAL AID AND DEVELOPMENT (CIAD ) will select a particularly worthwhile Society project which is badly in need of funds and invite the Society throughout the world to support it directly.

The Commission calls on the Vincentian community to rally behind these initiatives.
