Why donate to Caritas Internationalis?

Cardinal Luis Antonio Gokim Tagle, President of Caritas Internationalis, has the following message for us.

We are scandalised that millions of our brothers and sisters live in extreme poverty in a world of riches. Yet we are filled with hope because we are the first generation with the means to liberate them.

The Church has worked for and alongside the poorest people in the world throughout its history. Pope Francis has reinforced our mission. He chose his name after St. Francis of Assisi, a symbol of peace, austerity and poverty.

Caritas follows in the tradition of St. Francis in providing care to those who are excluded and marginalised.

Our Caritas organisations believe they can do more for the poor by working together. That’s why they work together as Caritas Internationalis to respond to disasters and conflicts, to protect the rights of the weak and to give poor communities the tools they need to build better lives.

Please support this united action by giving to Caritas Internationalis.
