Why donate to CHARIS?

The Humanitarian Aid Fund was established to support the humanitarian work of the Church in Singapore. It enables CHARIS to provide humanitarian assistance beyond just victims of natural disasters to all other forms of crises, adverse circumstances or humanitarian need that may occur overseas.

Funds are raised from the Catholic community in Singapore. The money collected is used for the operations of CHARIS and to provide grants to organisations undertaking disaster relief and humanitarian work.

We rely on donations from the Catholic community to help us in our humanitarian mission.

Your contribution, of any amount, will go a long way to make a difference to our brothers and sisters overseas who live in poverty or are affected by disasters or strife.

As the body that coordinates the Singapore Archdiocesan response to overseas humanitarian situations, CHARIS connects with other Caritas offices overseas, especially in the affected countries.

Through this network, CHARIS is able to better understand the situation on the ground and to collaborate with the relevant office(s) and determine the funding and other aid which is required.
