Caritas Australia is the international aid and development agency of the Catholic Church in Australia, working in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Pacific and in First Australian communities. We are part of the international Caritas Internationalis network, the second-largest humanitarian network in the world, which supports emergency aid and grassroots programs in over 200 countries and territories.
Our financial statements are externally audited (to the same standards which apply to Australian companies) and are available with our annual reports here.
As we work alongside communities in partnership, in some situations we may partner with local faith-based groups and encourage their participation in the development process.
Project Compassion is our annual fundraising, awareness and education appeal, held during Lent, the six-week period before Easter. Learn more here.
