Caritas de Angola
Caritas Angola was established in 1970 during the country’s war of independence and was one of the only humanitarian relief operations that worked continuously though the ensuing civil war.
Caritas focuses on food security, education, health and rural development to help break the chain linking high unemployment and limited health services with poverty.
The agency works in areas including:
There is a growing emphasis on development over emergency relief, through helping rebuild infrastructure and services, and aiding the rehabilitation of displaced people returning to their homes.
The stress is on rebuilding communities that are more sustainable, so they can ultimately respond to their own development needs.
