The world is changing, faster than ever.
The gap between rich and poor is growing larger and larger.
Our poorest sisters and brothers are being left behind.
Natural and manmade disasters are becoming more frequent.
Inspired by the Gospel, and guided by Catholic Social Teaching, SCIAF reaches out with love to our global neighbors in need, regardless of gender, class, race or religion.
We believe in giving people in need a hand up, not a hand out.
We help people provide for themselves and their family, creating hope for the future.
We stand side by side with communities to build peace and promote justice.
We help people get an education and learn new skills.
When disasters strike, we respond immediately as part the Caritas family with food, water, shelter and medical care, helping to rebuild lives and communities in the long term.
SCIAF works with the Scottish public, parishes and schools to build a better future for all, and put pressure governments and big business to create a fairer, more peaceful world.
We’re proud to be part of Caritas Internationalis, the Catholic Church’s international network of development charities from around the world, working tirelessly in more than 200 countries.
We can end poverty, if we all come together.
Let’s help the poorest survive and thrive.
