Supporting vulnerable people is our core concern

Caritas Luxembourg works side by side with the victims of natural disasters and violent conflicts, supports rebuilding and rehabilitation work and aims to reduce poverty through multi-annual projects. Caritas Luxembourg in Laos adopts a holistic approach whereby villagers and local authorities act together to define projects to diversify for income, increase resilience to disasters, strengthen local governance systems and develop adapted infrastructure for access to essential services such as health, clean water and sanitation.
