Caritas Internationalis is confederation of over 160 members who are working in almost every country of the world. All organizations members of the Caritas Internationalis are to be Waymarked in this Category.
Expanded Description:

Caritas Internationalis is a confederation of 165 Catholic relief, development and social service organizations operating in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.Collectively and individually their claimed mission is to work to build a better world, especially for the poor and oppressed. The first Caritas organization was established by Lorenz Werthmann on 9 November 1897 in Germany. Other national Caritas organizations were soon formed.
1950 saw the beginning of a union of Caritas organizations. Following a suggestion by Msgr Montini, then Substitute Secretary of State, and later Pope Paul VI, a study week, with participants from 22 countries, was held in Rome to examine the problems of Christian Caritas work. As a result, the decision was made to set up an international conference of Roman Catholic charities.In December 1951, upon approval of the statutes by the Holy See, the first constitutive General Assembly of Caritas Internationalis took place. Founding members came from Caritas organizations in 13 countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States.
In 1954, the Confederation changed its name to Caritas Internationalis to reflect the international presence of Caritas members on every continent.
