What We Do
CARITAS Gives Hope
The 21st Century dawns onto a world where millions of orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children are living without food, without education and without hope.
Most of these children will not be adopted, some of them cannot be adopted, but not one of them should be forgotten. CARITAS brings these children the resources needed to live a life of dignity and purpose.
CARITAS' Child Sponsorship program is a powerful and cost-effective way to change the life of a child, and to change the life of a sponsor.

CARITAS For Children partners with indigenous groups of men and women religious for all of their programs in all of the locations where we serve. Presently CARITAS is working with men and women religious located in Africa, Poland and the Caribbean.
CARITAS For Children is about building relationships encouraging charity and mercy, keeping consistent with our mission to inspire others to act in such a way as to promote the greatest commandment given, "to love God with one's whole heart and one's neighbor as oneself." (cf.Matt.22:37-40). The word itself, CARITAS inspires, unites and promotes loving others.
In addition to the sponsorship of children, there are several special projects that need attention in order to care for the needs of the children we serve. These projects allow us to continue developing our programs in various areas.
