Annual Report 2017-18

Caritas Australia is the international aid and development agency of the Catholic Church in Australia and part of Caritas Internationalis. With 165 member agencies in over 200 countries and territories, we are part of one of the world's largest humanitarian networks.

In 2018, Caritas Australia supported 88 long-term programs through 101 partnerships in 28 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Pacific, and with Australia’s First Peoples. This year, our partners told us of the increasing challenges they face because of the changing climate. In response, we worked together to build resilient and sustainable communities in the face of climate change.

Every year our organisation also responds to humanitarian emergencies across all regions. In 2017-18 we supported 31 emergency programs in 22 countries. Thanks to all our supporters, we reached 2 million people directly through our emergency and development programs.
