Caritas Jerusalem is a Jerusalem-based humanitarian/developmental organization representing the socio-pastoral services of the Catholic Church in the Holy Land.  It was founded in 1967 to respond to the humanitarian emergency that emerged in the aftermath of the Six-Day War. Since its foundation, Caritas Jerusalem has grown and assumed increasing responsibilities, both in terms of its program-base and its operational capability. Caritas Jerusalem is a member of Caritas Internationalis (CI). CI is a confederation of 162 separate Caritas organizations operating in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.
