Caritas Slovakia

Caritas Slovakia helps approximately 30,000 people in a need in almost 318 facilities for physical or mental disabilities, children, mothers with children and homeless people. We develop projects with focus on helping migrants, victims of human trafficking and child refugees for their reintegration; and building independence. This often means rescue them from life in the streets or depending on other social assistance.

We provide humanitarian aid abroad and give a chance through Children’s donation project to educate children from seven countries around the world. Besides that, we also run a center for children with HIV and AIDS in Uganda. We change the current living conditions of individuals with emphasis to improve the conditions for the future of society.

Our activities are focused on effective and long-term solutions. With these priorities in mind, we strive for more than just providing food and shelter, we also use donations for security education and encouraging society to be sensitive to environmental problems. Just like last year, this year as well we believe that our goal is common and to achieve it, we need your help.

Caritas Slovakia is a purpose-built unit of the Catholic Church, established by the Episcopal Conference of Slovakia, and it is an independent legal entity. We provide assistance in Slovakia through a network of 4 archdiocesan (Bratislava, Trnava, Košice and Prešov) and 6 diocesan caritas (Nitra, Žilina, Banská Bystrica, Spiš, Rožňava and Greek Catholic eparchial caritas of Košice), which cooperate with volunteers in parish caritas. Caritas Slovakia is also part of European and global community – Caritas Internationalis (CI) based in Rome and Caritas Europa (CE) in Brussels, thus internationally interconnected and coordinated with other caritas. In 2019, we passed evaluation of Caritas Internationalis management standards (CIMS), which we successfully implement.
