Giving is receiving

We are scandalised that millions of our brothers and sisters live in extreme poverty in a world of riches. Yet we are filled with hope because we are the first generation with the means to liberate them.

The Church has worked for and alongside the poorest people in the world throughout its history. Pope Francis has reinforced our mission. He chose his name after St. Francis of Assisi, a symbol of peace, austerity and poverty.

Caritas follows in the tradition of St. Francis in providing care to those who are excluded and marginalised.

Our Caritas organisations believe they can do more for the poor by working together. That’s why they work together as Caritas Internationalis to respond to disasters and conflicts, to protect the rights of the weak and to give poor communities the tools they need to build better lives.

Please support this united action by giving to Caritas Internationalis.

Tribute Gifts are a wonderful way to recognise someone special or to celebrate a birthday, wedding, new baby, graduation or other important occasion. They are also a thoughtful way to express sympathy by honouring the memory of a deceased loved one.

For many donors a legacy is the largest gift that they will ever make. Legacy Gifts have a huge impact on the work of Caritas Internationalis. Gifts we have received in the recent past have allowed us to implement programmes that will have a lasting legacy.
