Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.
In November 2012, CMMB presented the Global Health Care Leadership Award to His Holiness and The Vatican’s Good Samaritan Foundation in recognition of our partnership, which has resulted in the provision of medicines and medical supplies valued at over $50 million for use in health facilities in 15 countries.
As Pope Benedict XVI prepares to retire from the Chair of St. Peter, CMMB joins its prayers with the entire Church, and with Catholics everywhere. CMMB has a special connection to the Vatican, and to the Holy Father, through our partnership with the Good Samaritan Foundation. Since 2010, CMMB has partnered with the Vatican to send medicines and medical supplies to some of the most inaccessible places in the world. To date, that partnership has resulted in more than $50 million worth of shipments to places like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, South Sudan and Zimbabwe. Fifteen countries in total have received support from CMMB because of this partnership, and it has been our honor to make those gifts in honor of Pope Benedict XVI. Please join us in praying for His Holiness, for the upcoming conclave to elect a new Pope, and for the entire Church during this time of transition. CMMB has committed to continuing the partnership with the Good Samaritan Foundation, and because of the generosity of donors like you, we will be able to continue sending medicine to those most vulnerable in our world. If you wish, make a special gift to CMMB todayin honor of Pope Benedict XVI. Thank you, and may God bless you for all the good that you do. Sincerely,
Bruce Wilkinson President & CEO Catholic Medical Mission Board
