About Caritas Ghana and Catholic Relief Services

Caritas Ghana
Caritas Ghana is a Charity Organization of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC) and member of the global Caritas Confederation. It operates under the National Catholic Secretariat.

The National Catholic Secretariat, which is the implementing arm of the Bishops’ Conference, was established in 1960 and was registered as a Corporate Body in 1962.

As part of the restructuring of the National Catholic Secretariat (NCS) by the Bishops’ Conference in 2010, the new Department of Human Development (DHD) effectively represented Caritas Ghana (See NCS Restructuring Document Pages 11 &16).

Caritas Ghana works in seven thematic areas namely; Social Development, Livelihood promotion, Social services, Promotion of Social and Environmental Justice, Public Policy Advocacy, Promotion of Pro-poor policies and Action Research.


Catholic Relief Services is a pro-life organization dedicated to preserving the sacredness and dignity of human life from conception to natural death.

Catholic Relief Services is a manifestation of love for our brothers and sisters around the globe by the Catholic community of the United States. We protect, defend and advance human life around the world by directly meeting basic needs and advocating solutions to injustice.

As a part of the Universal Church, Catholic institutions are our partners of preference in our work. To reach all those who need our help, we also participate in humanitarian initiatives undertaken by a wide range of groups, such as governments, other faith communities and secular institutions.

Although some positions and practices of these institutions are not always consistent with the full range of Catholic teaching, CRS’ association with them is always and only focused on activities that are fully consistent with Catholic teaching.
