Caritas Lebanon

Caritas (Latin equivalent word for charity) was founded in 1897 in Freiburg, Germany. In 1972, the Jesuit Brother Elie Maamari founded Caritas South Lebanon in cooperation with this region bishops. It became Caritas Lebanon on September 9th, 1976. In 1981, the Assembly of Catholic Patriarchs and Bishops of Lebanon approved Caritas Lebanon’s status and designated it as the official socio-pastoral arm of the Church to assist both individuals and communities and to support charitable and social activities. Caritas Lebanon is a member of Caritas Internationalis, one of the largest humanitarian networks in the world, counting 165 Catholic organizations working in 200 different countries.
