Pope Francis has established a Populorum Progressio Fund. He explained to members of the former Foundation that the Synodal journey that they must help the Church become more “Samaritan,” comforting, and engaging in order to “touch the wounds of Christ’s suffering flesh in His people.”
This change was caused by the reform of the Roman Curia. Pope Francis invited members of the Populorum Progressio Foundation, using the words of Benedict XVI, to remain faithful to the principles “that have distinguished your commitment to the dignity of every human being and the fight against poverty.”
In 1992, Pope St. John Paul II founded the Populorum Progressio Foundation for Latin America and the Caribbean was intended to “promote the integral development of the communities of the poorest campesinos [peasant farmers] of Latin America.” On September 16th, 2022, the Holy Father suppressed the Foundation, establishing in its place the Populorum Progressio Fund.
