Human dignity for all
Human dignity is at the center of Caritas International’s mission. Hunger is a consequence of poverty and represents a violation of fundamental human rights. The right to food is not all that’s in play: the right to a dignified life for the millions suffering from starvation every day is also at stake. The eradication of hunger is an essential requirement for every human being to lead a dignified and meaningful life.
A priority for Caritas
This is why Caritas International has made access to healthy, well-balanced, sufficient food a priority. In emergency humanitarian situations, we distribute food packages (enough to feed families for one month).
We also develop sustainable food security programs with the help of integrated family agriculture projects.
