Caritas Switzerland

Caritas Switzerland works for a world governed by solidarity, equity and peace, in which the rights and dignity of every human being is respected. Accordingly, Caritas Switzerland is committed to human rights, the Sustainable Development Goals and to ensuring that all people, regardless of their race, sex, religion or political persuasion have access to food, water, shelter, health, education and work. Caritas Switzerland works both in Switzerland and abroad in support of the deprived, poor and most vulnerable people, providing emergency relief as well as long-term development support. Thematically, Caritas Switzerland’s work is concentrated on six fields of activity: Food security; water, sanitation and hygiene; education and income; migration; disaster risk reduction and climate change; and humanitarian aid.
