    • Short history

      Caritas Alba Iulia in Romania is an NGO of public utility, founded by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Alba Iulia.

      At its beginnings the organization was mainly preoccupied in organizing the charitable help coming from abroad. Then a period of organizational consolidation came when structures where reorganized, regional centres where formed in order to help the needy. Meanwhile the main interest was in naming the concrete problems of the local communities, finding ways to collaborate with governmental and non-governmental institutions on local, regional and national level. Our organization is one important pioneer for the development of professional social services in Romania as well as one of the main providers in the Transylvanian region of the country.

      Caritas Alba Iulia is member of Caritas Confederation Romania, the representative forum of the Romanian dioceses’ Caritas organizations. Caritas Confederation Romania is member of Caritas Europa (Bruxelles) and Caritas Internationalis (Rome).

      In 2004 Caritas Alba Iulia gained the status of NGO of public utility, a distinction given to it by the government of Romania. In 2005 the services of the organization were accredited by the institutions of the state.

      The organization has complex projects in the field of social assistance in 6 counties from the central region of Romania.
