Who We Are
Caritas Malaysia is the official arm of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Malaysia (CBCM), engaging in works of integral human development, charity, relief, care for creation and social services. It is a network of members from nine diocesan Caritas/ human development offices with affiliates from congregations and other Catholic organisations engaged in integral human development and charity at a national level. We seek to work with communities, non-governmental organisations, and local authorities to promote inclusive and sustainable development for all.
The Gospels and the social teachings of the Catholic Church inspire Caritas Malaysia. We promote integral human development, advocate for the causes of poverty and violence and respond to humanitarian crises. We are called to equip, empower, and animate members of Caritas Malaysia, Catholic communities and all people of goodwill. We are called to be in solidarity with our disenfranchised brothers, sisters, and all of creation. We ensure that our natural environment is managed responsibly and sustainably for all.
