About Caritas

Caritas Kenema is the Diocesan Development Office (KDDO) owned by the Catholic Church. It was established in 1973 as the development and relief wing of the Diocese of Kenema. In the year 2000, the office assumed the name “Caritas Kenema”. As a faith based catholic organization, the vision of Caritas Kenema is founded on the social teachings of the Catholic Church. It is a civilization of love, solidarity and fraternity where:

• Justice, peace, truth, freedom, solidarity and fraternity prevail.
• The dignity of the human person is paramount
• Exclusion, discrimination, violence and dehumanizing poverty are no more
• The goods of the earth are shared by all
• All creation is cherished and held in trust for the common good of future generations
• All people, especially the poorest, the marginalized and the oppressed, find hope and are empowered to come to the fullness of their humanity as part of a global community.
