What we do worldwide

Caritas Switzerland prevents, combats and alleviates poverty worldwide in around 20 countries. We provide professional, effective and efficient help to people in need irrespective of their political or religious beliefs, gender or ethnicity.


With its projects in development cooperation, Caritas supports children and adults in the areas of income, climate and migration. It provides emergency relief in disasters and is actively involved in reconstruction work. By combining this humanitarian aid withsustained long-term development cooperation work, we provide additional support in the wake of natural disasters or during long-lasting crises.

The aim of all programmes is to reduce poverty, strengthen people’s resilience, ensure that their rights are respected and expand their capabilities to realise goals they have reasons to value. Both its work in Switzerland and its international engagement are Caritas Switzerland’s contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), set out by the UN in the 2030 Agenda.
