Caritas works for a world that is free of poverty and injustice. Our theme for 2014 invited young people to consider ways their song can express empathy for people in need. We wanted to hear songs that suggested we take more notice of how we might help change things to improve the lives of people who struggle with poverty, oppression, injustice or hopelessness.
