About Caritas: Towards a civilisation of love
As a part of the Catholic Church, Caritas Internationalis reflects the social mission of the Church and the following core values:
Dignity: We see the poor as dignified human beings, not hopeless objects of pity, and we work with them to build a better future for themselves.
Justice: We believe you cannot make a gift of something a person should already have by right. We challenge economic, social, political and cultural structures opposed to a just society.
Solidarity: We work to enhance solidarity with the poor, seeing the world through their eyes, and recognising the interdependence of humanity.
Stewardship: We believe the planet and all its resources are entrusted to humankind and seek to act in an environmentally responsible way as true stewards of creation.
