The Papal Foundation Grants $25,000 to End Abuse and Trafficking of Fishermen in Taiwan

Inspired by the appeal of the Holy Father in Laudato Si to create industries from waste, the Capuchin Friars in the Archdiocese of Port-au-Prince in Haiti launched a project entitled “The Industrialization of Plastic Waste.”


The aim is two-fold, providing a viable means for disposing of the plastic waste littering the streets and beaches of Port-au-Prince, as well as providing employment to members of 20 local families. The plastic will be used to create blocks that will later be made into tiles and other products used in civil construction.
