Who are the Brothers of Charity?
The Brothers of Charity are an international religious congregation with a strong commitment to various social issues.
From their foundation in 1807, the Brothers of Charity took on their mission in society: organize education and provide care for children, adolescents, and adults. They always sided with those who found no response to their request for help elsewhere.
As a result, the Brothers of Charity grew into a large congregational organization of brothers and lay staff members.
The Brothers of Charity have convent communities and initiatives in 30 countries around the world. They are most strongly represented in Africa and Asia.
