With a presence in at least 165 countries, Caritas gives assistance to the most needy. This year the organization celebrated its 60th anniversary.
Despite some controversy, the pope made it clear, that all of Caritas charity work must be consistent with the Gospel. Therefore, the Vatican has the right to oversee all of Caritas activities.

The organization was formed after World War II, when there was wide spread devastation. Pope Pius XII, decided to help those in need through charity work.
