KAIROS is a leading multi-denominational church based social justice organisation in Canada. We support KAIROS because it embodies well the concept of ‘faith in action’. It is independent, not beholden to any lobby group and willing to speak truth to power – whatever that power may be. KAIROS supports many of our world’s powerless in their struggle for justice and has a clear record of using funds wisely and efficiently to do so.
