WHO WE ARE

Caritas Hungary is the legal Aid of the Hungarian Catholic Church, helps people in need by maintaining social, health care facilities, and various help programs and actions regardless of age, gender, denomination.

Our work is governed by the principles and standards developed and adopted by the major international aid organizations. The most important thing is that the personal love of the volunteer and professional staff working in the charity network reaches the people we support. We practice charity in the community and we welcome all those interested in these communities.

Love of neighbour, grounded in the love of God, is first and foremost a responsibility for each individual member of the faithful, but it is also a responsibility for the entire ecclesial community at every level: from the local community to the particular Church and to the Church universal in its entirety. As a community, the Church must practise love. Love thus needs to be organized if it is to be an ordered service to the community. (Deus Caritas Est: Encyclical Letter of the Supreme Pontiff Benedict). So Caritas Hungary is a movement and institution at the same time. A movement in which volunteers work and an institution that provides the necessary framework for work as an official aid organization for the Catholic Church.
