Caritas-Stern

Caritas Star

Millions of innocent families suffer worldwide and in Switzerland from the consequences of poverty. Hunger, wars, natural disasters and the disregard for basic human rights threaten children, women and men. Every family should be allowed to live in dignity and security. 

As a Caritas Star, you support the strengthening of food security of small farming families in Mali, covering the basic needs of fleeing families in Burkina Faso, or combating poverty in Switzerland. With just 10 Swiss francs a month, you bring optimism.
