Our Mission is to serve the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized in Cyprus regardless of religion, ethnicity or nationality.
Essential Services for the Vulnerable
Caritas Cyprus receives core funding from Catholic Relief Services in order to provide comprehensive support services for migrants, refugees and other vulnerable groups. By addressing identified gaps in available welfare services to meet basic emergency needs, providing wrap-around case management for the chronically vulnerable, advocating for progressive national policies and increased public engagement in the protection of human rights, Caritas Cyprus ensures that migrants, refugees and the vulnerable can pursue a life of dignity and attain increased integration within Cypriot society.
Local parish-associated Caritas committees throughout the island also provide a range of services to address local needs, which include humanitarian assistance in the form of food, clothing and baby items. When possible, other services such as language lessons, are offered by parish volunteers.
