Together, Caritas organizations work to strengthen themselves, each other and the confederation through setting and living up to the Caritas Internationalis Management Standards.
They’re based on existing good practice and accepted global principles within the humanitarian and international development community, and safeguard our professional competence and efficacy in serving our neighbors.
I thank the Lord for Caritas and its valuable service in the world @Pontifex
The worldwide Caritas Internationalis endeavor to implement its management standards recently received strong support from Pope Francis, who wrote this message to all Caritas organizations:
“As I said at your last General Assembly, I thank the Lord for Caritas and its valuable service in the world. I also congratulate the governance bodies and the General Secretariat of Caritas Internationalis for developing and approving the Management Standards and Code of Conduct for the member organizations.
“These instruments must now be applied to strengthen the transparency and credibility of Caritas. Let us remember that we are accountable to God, to the Church, to the donors and in particular, to the poor with whom the Lord identifies Himself. By serving them with humility, dedication, self-denial and professionalism, we promote the Church’s mission of forming one human family, caring for creation.”
Pope Francis, 19 October 2015
