From April 6-8, Misereor CEO Pirmin Spiegel and Archbishop of Freiburg Stephan Burger spent time with the farmers of MASIPAG and joined in celebration of the Holy Mass during the 10th General Assembly. With the objective to get to know more about the MASIPAG farmers, they travelled to Quezon province where they held field visits and community dialogues on MASIPAG’s programs, and the issue of climate change.
“When asked what their membership in MASIPAG meant to them, the representatives of the farmers’ groups did not need to think twice. And the aspects they cite go far beyond what we would expect and testify to a holistic and deep reflection on life, development and the future.”
