Why donate?

‘Christian poverty is that I give of my own, and not of that which is left over. I give, even that which I need for myself, to the poor person, because I know that he enriches me. Why does the poor person enrich me? Because Jesus Himself told us that He is in the poor person.’ Pope Francis, June 2015.

Please support Caritas Social Action Network.

A donation will help us to make our nations places where every person can flourish in their families and communities, living with peace and human dignity, and where the voices of the poor and wounded are heard and acted upon.

With your support we can:

  • Enable our network of charities and dioceses to tackle poverty and build strong communities.
  • Develop new responses to local and national needs.
  • Address the causes of poverty and witness to the experience of those living in poverty.

Caritas Social Action Network’s national team receives no direct public funding.
