Pax Christi International offers thanks to Fund Development Officer Javier Gárate Neidhardt as he moves on to work in Colombia


7/9/18 - Pax Christi International is sad to announce that Javier Gárate Neidhardt, our Fund Development Officer for the past three years, has left the International Secretariat effective last month. He is continuing his commitment to working for peace and justice in Colombia. 

"In his position as fundraiser, Javier has been instrumental in building and nurturing new positive relationships for our global movement and increased awareness of the importance of Pax Christi’s work among individuals and organisations in many different parts of the world," stated Pax Christi International Secretary General Greet Vanaerschot. "His dedication was nourished by a deep commitment to the cause of justice and peace and the belief in the power of active nonviolence."

All of his colleagues at the International Secretariat wish him well in his new work and are grateful for all that he has done in his time on the staff in Brussels. Good luck in Colombia and thank you Javier!
