One of the largest international humanitarian networks, Caritas assists people regardless of their ethnicity, political beliefs, gender or religion.
Caritas works to uphold the human dignity of those at greatest risk. The organisation provides a beacon of hope for millions of children, women and men in times of hardship and contributes to the development of social justice in times of peace. Caritas’ role is large and varied, and includes integral development, emergency relief, advocacy, peacebuilding, respect for human rights, and support for stewardship of the planet’s environment and resources.
