Caritas Vietnam reopened in 2008 after it was closed by the Government 32 years earlier. It has since applied for membership of Caritas Internationalis.
Extreme climatic events such as drought and typhoons which lead to floods have caused devastation and loss of lives in recent years. Other challenges to development include widespread poverty, damaged infrastructure through conflict, land scarcity and unemployment.
Caritas Vietnam focuses its work on emergency relief, development, social and charitable activities with the aim of promoting integral human development.
Caritas Vietnam relies on voluntary contributions for its work. To boost its funds, it launches a fundraising campaign every Lent.
