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.
