Caritas Internationalis is at the heart of the Church’s mission.
Its member organisations link together in a confederation to serve the world’s poor, vulnerable, dispossessed and marginalized. Caritas is inspired by Scripture, Catholic Social Teaching and by the experiences and hopes of people who are disadvantaged and living in poverty.
We work with people of all faiths and those who have none.
Caritas strives for a world where the voices of the poor are heard and acted upon, where each person is free to flourish and live in peace and dignity and where our natural environment given by God is managed responsibly and sustainably in the interests of the entire human family.
“The development of peoples depends on a recognition that the human race is a single family working together…” (Pope John Paul II)
