CARITAS 2015 Report

CARITAS INTERNATIONAL is organised into different regions. Cyprus belongs in CARITAS MONA (Middle East and North Africa). Each Catholic parish in Cyprus (Roman and Maronite) has a branch of CARITAS, working on issues in their own locality as well as giving mutual support as appropriate.

What is CARITAS?

Over 160 Catholic organisations (including CAFOD and TROCAIRE) have joined together to form CARITAS INTERNATIONAL. Stronger together, CARITAS INTERNATIONAL aims to make a real difference to the lives of the poor and disadvantaged worldwide.CARITAS (PAPHOS) has now been formed, to stand alongside and help the poor and disadvantaged, especially in our local community.
