Caritas Manila is one of the largest church-based nonprofit organizations in the Philippines. Through their programs and services, they aim to concretize the love of God among the poor, the weak, and the vulnerable -the “least, last and lost” in society. Caritas Manila’s core programs are geared toward integral human, spiritual, and socio-economic development of the poor. Caritas Manila has always believed that meaningful assistance must be an empowering process. Most of their programs are designed to transform people from poverty and dependence to self-reliance with dignity.
