Caritas Australia COVID-19 Resource Hub

Staying globally connected while staying home

Since its emergence at the end of 2019, the COVID-19 coronavirus has swept across the world and reached pandemic proportions. Life has stopped in many countries as borders close and all but essential services shut down. Thousands have died and tens of thousands have been infected in dozens of countries.

For Caritas Australia, the emergency is an urgent call for solidarity with the most vulnerable communities around the world, the ones who are most affected by this global crisis and need us the most.

Caritas Australia is striving to assist you in the face of disruption. We have created many resources to help us all get through this together. Please find these useful resources below.

COVID-19 is a reminder that whatever the future, we can only get through this together and by accompanying the most vulnerable. One Caritas worker said that this is a time for an “intertwined net of responsibility” where each of us understands how we can help others.

Thank you for your support, please stay tuned for new resources as we navigate this time together.

We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest.."
Oscar Romero
