Caritas Sverige

Caritas is the aid organisation of the Catholic Church and works for the equality and rights of all people. In Sweden, Caritas works with local support for the elderly and the sick, advice in asylum matters, against trafficking (human smuggling), with volunteer work etcetera. In the wider world we carry out humanitarian work in disaster areas, and we support countries in their struggle against poverty and oppression. We are part of Caritas Internationalis, the international Caritas which is one of the largest development networks in the world, uniting just over 160 Catholic national development organisations in over 200 countries.
