On #WorldHumanitarianDay, we want to recognize and thank all humanitarian workers for providing help and hope in the face of crises and challenges across the globe. With a grassroots presence worldwide, #Caritas local organizations support their communities, the poor and the displaced and are often at the core of emergency response to natural disasters, conflicts, famines and wars.
Caritas Internationalis is confederation of over 160 members who are working at the grassroots in almost every country of the world. When a crisis hits, Caritas is already on the ground.
Members of Caritas in the Middle East and North Africa work primarily on emergency response, migration, education, development, women’s empowerment, youth and volunteering, human trafficking and peace building.
Caritas Europa’s 49 members, present in 46 European countries, are united in fighting poverty and social exclusion as well as promoting true integral human development, social justice and sustainable social systems in Europe and throughout the world.
