Saving lives, reducing suffering, maintaining dignity
Caritas responds to emergencies around the world. We aim to save lives, reduce suffering, and maintain human dignity as we show our solidarity and shared humanity with those who suffer, and meet their basic needs – regardless of ethnicity, religion or nationality.

Wherever a disaster occurs, one of our partners will be there, coordinating local people and supplies to provide an effective and efficient response.
