Our Mission

CARITAS provides economic development, livelihoods, health and social care, education, service to foreign refugees, emergency and crisis intervention, environmental supervision and protection of the needy, in coordination with the Council of Catholic Patriarchs and Bishops, dioceses, and priests.

Our Vision

CARITAS Lebanon is striving for a developed, sustainable, and environmentally inclusive world. We believe that all human beings have a common origin and are created in the image of God and have the same dignity. The main pillars of Caritas Lebanon’s Vision are Solidarity, Prosperity and Fraternity. “Treat people, especially the weak and marginalized, as a brother who needs help and support” (Matthew 25:31-46).

Caritas (Latin equivalent word for charity) was founded in 1897 in Freiburg, Germany. In 1972, the Jesuit Brother Elie Maamari founded Caritas South Lebanon in cooperation with this region bishops. It became Caritas Lebanon on September 9th, 1976.

Over five decades of its existence, Caritas has honored its commitment and pledge to the needy.
