The dignity of every human being is a central concern of Caritas, in particular when help is needed, and when affected people find themselves in situations that they are reluctant to talk about: dependence on others, dementia, exclusion due to physical or mental impairment. Yet, anyone can suffer a similar fate, as nobody is safe from illness, even in the 21st century.
As an endowment contributor, you can facilitate practical help for these people and enable them to lead a life within society in spite of their illness or handicaps. No matter if it is in their own four walls, in the Austria-wide nursing homes of Caritas, or by helping them to build a self-determined future.
