Before, during and after emergencies, Caritas is there.

Our partners and sister agencies are on the ground to provide immediate relief when disaster strikes, and ongoing rebuilding long after the headlines have faded away.

We usually run two special emergency appeals during the year for particularly significant emergencies. In most cases, we can usually accept donations towards other emergencies that our partners or Caritas members are responding to.

Current Emergencies

We are currently running appeals for the Philippines following Super Typhoon Bopha in November 2013 and for Tonga after Tropical Cyclone Ian in January 2014.

We are also currently accepting donations for the Syria crisis and the  Canterbury earthquake recovery. We appreciate the efforts schools and students make to support people in extreme need.
