Dignity of the Human Person
How is dignity upheld? The dignity of every person, independent of ethnicity, creed, gender, sexuality, age or ability, is the foundation of CST. No human being should have their dignity or freedom compromised. Poverty, hunger, oppression and injustice make it impossible to live a life commensurate with this dignity. At Caritas Australia, all our programs are people-centred with empowerment at their heart. People are never treated as commodities nor as mere recipients of aid.
