Caritas and Accountability: Safeguarding

One of the strongest commitments of our organization is ensuring that all participants of our programs – including children, vulnerable adults, and disabled people – are protected from abuse and exploitation. The environment in which we operate is extremely prone to abuse and exploitation as a consequence of power imbalance or violence. Such risks are heightened, in particular, during humanitarian crisis. At Caritas Czech Republic we have rigorous systems in place to make sure that everyone we work with is safe from any harm.

Mongolia is Surfing the “Renovation Wave” through Construction Materials Recovery

Mongolia is the 19th largest country in the world by area, however, its population of just 3.29 million, also makes it the world’s most sparsely populated country.
