Caritas Chile is prominent in humanitarian and social assistance in Chile, partly as a result of two upheavals. The first was the earthquake in 1960, in response to which large amounts of aid came from the United States through Catholic Relief Services, enabling Caritas Chile to increase its presence throughout the country. The second was the military coup of 1973, following which aid from Europe in the form of food, clothing and medicines was channelled through Caritas Chile, further increasing its capacity.
Caritas Chile is committed to the construction of a just, equal and caring society, in pursuit of which it is involved in numerous humanitarian and development programmes.
