The other Christmas portals

The Caritas campaign for these days recalls the situation of social exclusion in which 11 million people in Spain find themselves.

11 million people, 2.5 million more than in 2018, will live these days a difficult Christmas. They are the other portals of millions of homes in our country in which a deep imprint of hopelessness lingers and to which Caritas wants to arrive, especially at this time of the year.

This Christmas every portal matters is the slogan of the campaign that Caritas Spain is launching these days with the aim of "giving birth to the best that we are and sharing it with the rest of the people".

In this line, Caritas encourages us to look at others and "spend our lives in rebuilding a different and better society than the one we have", helping those who have less to "build a community that cares for and celebrates the encounter and life from love, from solidarity and compassion that inhabit us".

Solidarity carol

This year the singer Pastora Soler was in charge of performing the traditional Christmas carol of Cáritas Española. 

The carol has had the collaboration of the San Pablo CEU University Foundation, which has promoted the project. The income obtained through the visualizations of the carol will go entirely to Caritas Spain.
