CARITAS IN AFRICA

The Caritas network spreads all over sub-Saharan Africa. Caritas Africa brings together 46 national Caritas organisations. They are part of the local communities they serve.

Together, Caritas Africa members focus on human development, peace building and economic justice, while practically responding to some of the world’s largest and most complex humanitarian emergencies. These include Darfur, the Democratic Republic of Congo and food crises in the Sahel in the west and the Horn of Africa in the east.

A survey of Caritas Africa members in 31 countries, showed that Caritas is present in 372 diocese and there are 15,000 parish Caritas. The survey showed that there are 867 staff at the national level and 38,600 at the diocesan and parish level. Caritas is largely dependent on its volunteers in Africa: no less than 453,000 offer their services.

In the 31 countries polled, Caritas national members offered services to 73 million people.
