One of the unique aspects of L’Arche is that we are an international family.
While each Community is self-governing we are bound together by links of friendship and solidarity through the International Federation of L’Arche. Our Communities in Australia have regular solidarity gatherings where we hear stories from L’Arche Communities in other countries and find ways of supporting them. Through the Federation we are able to stay in touch with our friends around the world. This also means that when there is a natural disaster (Haiti) or political instability (Zimbabwe) we are able to put faces and names to people affected by these situations.
A member of the International Leadership Team of the Federation is named as the International Delegate with responsibility for L’Arche in Australia.
