Caritas on Lent 2013: Be a life saver

When an emergency hits, getting food, water, protection, healthcare, shelter, care and counselling to people in need is our priority.

Making sure that this happens in a coordinated, effective and efficient way is the responsibility of the Caritas Internationalis Emergency Response Team.

Whether it is travelling to emergencies in support of local staff, working with them to produce action plans, or mobilising funding and expertise, the Emergency Response Team is key to our lifesaving operations.

Caritas Internationalis was set up 60 years ago by the Vatican to organise the humanitarian operations of the Catholic Church. We are trusted by Pope Benedict XVI to continue to deliver this mission.

Be a lifesaver. Give to our Emergency Response Fund.
