Dear sisters and brothers,

It is with great joy that I present our annual report for 2019. In it you will find an overview of the work done by the many Franciscans who have come to the United Nations to expose the injustices faced in their communities, and the actions they were able to take to affect positive change at the grassroots. I warmly encourage you to share these collective achievements in your communities and networks.

Ultimately our work relies on the backing of the Franciscan family worldwide. I would like to express our gratitude for both your moral and financial support, without which our common ministry would not be possible. This year, your contributions will again make a profound difference to all Franciscans engaged for justice both at the grassroots, and at the United Nations.

With thanks and fraternal greetings,

Markus Heinze OFM
Executive Director
