At Secours Catholique-Caritas France, nearly 65,000 volunteers and 1,000 employees work against poverty and in favor of solidarity, in France and around the world.
As a service of the Catholic Church whose mission is to support the most vulnerable, the association – created in 1946 – is mobilized in France and overseas and provides support in more than 70 countries and territories in connection with the global network Caritas Internationalis.
Secours Catholique tackles all the causes of poverty, inequality and exclusion. The association calls on public opinion and public authorities and proposes long-term solutions. It places at the heart of its action the participation of the people it assists and the reinforcement of the capacity of all to act together.
