Caritas is a Latin word that means “charity” or universal love. Caritas Bangladesh (CB) was founded in 1967 as the eastern branch of Caritas Pakistan and turned into a national organisation on January 13, 1971. In the light of the Social Teachings of the Church, CB envisions a society which embraces the values of freedom, justice, peace and forgiveness allowing all to live as a communion and community of mutual love and respect. Caritas Bangladesh tries to function in partnership with people – especially the poor and the marginalised, with equal respect for all – to attain integral development, to live a truly human life in dignity and to serve others responsibly and with love.
