Living Our Social Mission

Caritas Singapore is all about people. Through our programmes, we seek to serve the community and we welcome you to join us on this journey.

Caritas Singapore is the official social and community arm of the Catholic Church in Singapore, and the umbrella body for 27 Catholic charities and organisations whose work has touched the lives of many regardless of race or religion. We are also a member of Caritas Internationalis, a global confederation of over 160 humanitarian organisations.

The name Caritas means charity in Latin, and reminds us to live out our faith through social works.

Our logo
The Caritas logo comprises three elements – the Caritas Cross, the Caritas name, and the region of Singapore. The flaming Caritas Cross symbolises Christ’s burning love for His people. This expression forms the core of the work done by Caritas Singapore and our member organisations.

Our Caritas Singapore family
The organisations under the umbrella of Caritas Singapore support a wide array of causes such as the poor, children, youth at risk, families, prisoners, elderly, sick, people with life-limiting illnesses, people with HIV/AIDS, those with disabilities, migrant workers, people with legal and medical needs.

There are more than 70 programmes run by these organisations aimed at helping the people in need. Programmes and services include soup kitchen, financial assistance, residential care, shelters, befriending, counselling, palliative care, student care, skills training etc. While our main focus remains in Singapore, some members of the Caritas family look into humanitarian needs overseas.
