Where we work
We are working with vulnerable communities in Bamyan Province to improve food security through farming and nutrition education. The project focuses on fostering sustainable behaviour to address issues of food security.
In Cambodia we have a five-year programme which supports indigenous people to improve their farming techniques, adapt their crops to a changing climate, and protect their forests against illegal logging.
In 2017 the Health Champions project was launched to promote health lifestyles and reduce the incidence of non-communicable diseases like diabetes and heart disease. It also aims to reduce malnutrition in children.
We work with rural communities to develop sustainable and climate-resilient livelihoods in the Philippines. This country is particularly vulnerable to typhoons and Caritas provides emergency relief when they hit.
We have been working with our partners in South Sudan to provide emergency supplies and improve food security and access to fresh water for the thousands of people who have been displaced by civil conflict. In 2017, famine was declared in some areas of South Sudan making the situation even more difficult.
