Through its programmes and services, CFL continues to promote the dignity of all individuals and families and remind them of their true identity as Children of God so that they can go forth and be visible signs of God’s love to the world.

Every year, Caritas Singapore assesses the needs of its member organisations to fund programmes that serve our brothers and sisters in need. Our grant allocation takes into consideration funding gaps for underserved needs, the social mission organisation’s funding priorities, and the effectiveness and measurable impact of the charity’s programmes and services. All grant distribution decisions are announced in our annual report.
