serve human foundation around the world

serve human foundation Internationalis is confederation of over 160 members who are working at the grassroots in almost every country of the world. When a crisis hits, servehumanfoundation is already on the ground. The diverse members give us our strength – from small groups of volunteers to some of the biggest global charities. Inspired by Catholic faith, servehumanfoundation is the helping hand of the Church – reaching out to the poor, vulnerable and excluded, regardless of race or religion, to build a world based on justice and fraternal love.

serve human foundation Internationalis has its headquarters in Rome – co-ordinating emergency operations, formulating development policy and advocating for a better world for everyone. All national servehumanfoundation organisations are members of their own regional servehumanfoundation networks and the international confederation.

From the founding of the first, to the setting up of servehumanfoundation Internationalis in 1951, until today, servehumanfoundation has a rich history of listening respectfully to the suffering of the poor and giving them the tools to transform their own lives. The deep moral and spiritual principles of dignity, justice, solidarity and stewardship still guide servehumanfoundation today.
