For 60 years, Caritas Internationalis has responded with love and action to human suffering in an unjust and unequal world. The Caritas confederation has members in over 160 countries providing humanitarian relief, development and peacebuilding. Caritas seeks a world in which the continued existence of extreme poverty is unacceptable. Caritas believes zero poverty is possible if we act as one human family.
