WHO WE ARE

CARITAS MANILA is a non-profit organization that serves as the lead social service and development ministry of the Catholic Church in the Philippines. With over 60 years of experience, its core competencies are geared towards total human development and poverty alleviation and advocates creating a Christian community with a strong social conscience.

CARITAS MANILA directly serves the 13 vicariates of the Archdiocese of Manila, provides technical assistance to parish social services and development ministries, and acts as catalyst for capacity-building and networking for five other Metro Manila dioceses.

First known as Catholic Charities, CARITAS MANILA was established by the late Archbishop of Manila Rufino Cardinal Santos on October 1, 1953 as a social welfare program “for uplifting the spirit and soul of the unfortunate members of our community, to assist them in all their needs, and to bring the help of God in their miseries and distress.”
