About us


Caritas Switzerland helps people in need in Switzerland and worldwide in more than 40 countries. Together with the network of Regional Caritas Organisations, Caritas Switzerland gets actively involved where people in wealthy Switzerland are affected by poverty: families, single parents, the unemployed, the working poor. Caritas organises volunteer support and looks after asylum seekers and refugees. Globally, Caritas provides emergency relief in disasters and helps with reconstruction. Development cooperation helps people to help themselves, in such areas as food security, water, the environment, human rights and education for children and adults.



In 2002, on the occasion of its 200-year anniversary, GF established the Clean Water foundation. Since then, GF provides the foundation with a considerable amount each year. To date, Clean Water has supported around 120 projects with over CHF 8.5 million and has improved the lives of more than 140 000 people with a sustainably improved access to clean drinking water. To mark the foundation’s tenth anniversary in 2012, GF and Caritas Switzerland signed a partnership for the supply of drinking water.
