Social Christ

Action of love of Christ the Redeemer
When solidarity exists, transformation happens.

The Action of Love of Christ the Redeemer began during the Monument’s 80 years celebrations. With the goal of providing assistance to the most needy, the project organizes joint efforts of itinerant social services geared to meet the poor population of various regions of the city of Rio de Janeiro.

"Many are those who, for various reasons, are unable to go to the top of Corcovado. So, it is very important that, through social actions, Christ the Redeemer can go down from Corcovado to meet the most needy. For him there are no space limitations: he welcomes everyone."

Canon Marcus William, episcopal vicar for culture and media communications in the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro

In partnership with public and private institutions, specialized professionals provide preventive services in health, education, social care, citizenship and environment, aimed at improving the quality of life of those to whom the work is directed.
