Caritas in Middle East & North Africa (MONA)

Members of Caritas in the Middle East and North Africa work primarily on emergency response, migration, education, development, women empowerment, youth and volunteering, human trafficking and peace building. Their humanitarian assistance programmes have grown following the turmoil of the Arab Spring and increased conflict in the region. Cooperation and inter-faith dialogue are priorities as is response to the threat of HIV/AIDS.

Other focuses for Caritas MONA include improving bilateral partnerships, investing in programmes for young people and creating more coherence around the issue of migration.
