At SCIAF, in all we do, we are compelled by Christ’s love. We help people in the world’s poorest places to lift themselves out of poverty, work together to protect our common home, and help people recover from disaster.
For five decades we've reached out to our global neighbours in need, irrespective of their race, religion or background, sustained by the generosity and love of Catholics in Scotland.
As part of Caritas, a global Church network with a presence in more than 160 countries, we’re already there when emergencies strike, and will be there long after others have left. Together with local communities we develop local solutions that will make a real and lasting difference.
We help people provide for themselves and their families, start businesses, and learn new skills, creating hope for the future. We stand side by side with communities to build peace and promote justice, so they have power over their own lives.
We are building God’s Kingdom here on earth so that we can all live in His love and justice, free from fear and persecution. We work with people in the hardest circumstances, so they can overcome their daily struggles and the structures of injustice that make and keep them poor. We actively serve those forced to the fringes of society and deprived of opportunity.
We work to prevent disasters and, when disaster does strike, we respond immediately by feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless and rebuilding lives and communities in the long term.
We know that the poorest suffer the most: we will not forsake them.
The SCIAF family is a global community. We believe that a just and green world is possible, if we all come together in love and kindness.
We seek to inspire people to live their faith and build a world where everyone is equal and free from poverty.
Together we pray, we act and we give.
