A special way to remember your loved one

Giving is receiving

You can give in memory of a friend or relative though Caritas Internationalis. It’s a way of leaving a legacy of love around the world in their name. At a time of distress, it’s a way to be part of something positive.

Caritas is guided by faith and justice to help every person fulfil their true potential. You can celebrate the life and values of your loved one with a gift that helps people in need achieve a better and brighter future.

You can make a one-off donation as your personal act of remembrance, or request donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral.

If you donate online please let us know who you are donating in memory of using the ‘additional information’ section.

Please contact us for more information about giving in memory.

Once a year a special Memorial Mass will be celebrated by Msgr. Pierre Cibambo Ntakobajira who is appointed by the Holy See as the Ecclesiastical Assistant at Caritas Internationalis. All names added to our Book of Remembrance will be read out during the Mass.
