Caritas Internationalis - Malaysia

Unverified non-profit organisation

Caritas Internationalis is a confederation of 162 Catholic relief, development and social service organisations working to build a better world, especially for the poor and oppressed, in over 200 countries and territories. Caritas provides a beacon of hope for tens of millions of women, men and children in times of hardship and contributes to the development of social justice in times of peace. Caritas’ mandate includes integral development, emergency relief, advocacy, peace building, respect for human rights and support for proper stewardship of the planet’s environment and resources.

Caritas is about more than daily survival. Our work is about ensuring the poorest and most marginalized are the driving force in our emergency response, sustainable development and peace building. To achieve this, we focus on six key areas:
1. Peace and reconciliation.
2. Emergencies.
3. Economic justice.
4. Climate change.
6. Women and migration.
