Caritas Switzerland supports children and adults in precarious situations in around 20 countries worldwide in the areas of income, climate and migration. In the event of disasters, Caritas provides emergency relief and supports reconstruction. In cooperation with local partner organisations, we are actively engaged in meeting basic needs, empowering people, ensuring that their rights are respected and fighting inequality.
For a world without poverty
Caritas Switzerland supports people professionally, effectively and efficiently, irrespective of their religious and political views, their gender or their ethnicity. We are committed to the sustainable development goals which were set out in the 2030 Agenda.
