Caritas Switzerland

Caritas Switzerland prevents, alleviates and combats poverty in Switzerland and worldwide in around 20 countries.

 

Together with the network of Regional Caritas Organisations, Caritas Switzerland is actively engaged wherever people in wealthy Switzerland are affected by poverty: families, single parents, the unemployed, and the working poor. Caritas looks after asylum seekers and refugees and organises volunteer placements.

Globally, Caritas provides emergency relief in disasters and is actively involved in reconstruction work. With its projects in development cooperation, Caritas supports children and adults in the areas of income, climate and migration.

Caritas Switzerland is an independent association with its head office in Lucerne. The aid agency is a member of the international Caritas network. This comprises 165 organisations worldwide.
