Caritas in Asia

Caritas Asia was set up in 1999. It has 23 members who work together in the different parts of the region to better pool resources.

As the region is prone to repeated natural disasters, Caritas Asia focuses on creating better disaster preparedness and on building stronger local capacity to respond to emergencies. Addressing climate change and human trafficking – which are important regional issues – are also priorities. With emergencies created by conflict also affecting the region, Caritas Asia also invests in reconstruction, peacebuilding and inter-faith dialogue.

Caritas Asia supports eco-friendly sustainable agriculture practices by promoting organic farming and working with small farmers to adopt agricultural practices and technologies that are not harmful to the environment.

The Caritas Asia Secretariat is located in Bangkok, with a special focus on the capacity building of its members.

  • 9 July 2014
Unfortunately rather than creating the conditions for a “globalisation of spirit” where we live in a state of peaceful co-existence and fraternity, we are increasingly experiencing a “globalisation of indifference”.
