We Are The Daughters of Charity organization

Hijas Caridad is a website where you can find information regarding the Daughters of Charity organization, and also its various offshoot organizations such as the Sisters of Charity, or Vincentian Orders, etc. The life of St. Vincent de Paul was aimed towards helping people in need and thus he embarked on the journey towards setting up of the organization the Daughters of Charity. The Daughters of Charity were an organization of Catholic women who took the vow of poverty, celibacy, and unconditionally helping those in need in the name of Christ. This organization saw the light of day in 1633 and is almost nearing their 4th century anniversary. We choose to promote and portray the works and history of this organization owing to the fact that they are one of the largest charitable Christian organizations and the story of their development has been unlike any other.


Our Vision And Mission


Our Vision

As much as it is important to gather religious strength, organize it, and channel it towards social work, it is also important to acknowledge it and let everyone know about it. In this age of information and technology, it is very important to sometimes take the burden of passing on the information away from the people who are actively working in the real world. So this website strives to serve as a source of information towards the organization, Daughters of Charity, and all its likenesses. The Daughters of Charity are now spread all around the Globe in almost 100 countries with a total of about 800,000 members. So the amount of work done by them even at a day’s scale cannot be timely reported by us on this website. However, we o try to provide as much information about the organization’s activities and history as possible.

Our Mission

The mission of this website is to provide clear and true information regarding the organization, the Daughters of Charity. This organization was founded in 1633 in Paris, France by St. Vincent de Paul with the help of St. Louise de Marillac. The aim of this organization at the time of founding was to help the people living in the slums of Paris, but since then the organization has grown beyond the borders of France and has aided in various social work sectors.
You can also find on our website histories of the prominent personalities related to this organization such as St. Vincent de Paul, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. Louise de Marillac, etc. Information regarding the history and activities of the Sisters of Charity, which functions as the official wing of the Daughters of Charity in the United States can also be found on this website.
Keep in mind that this is an independent website which provides content on the Daughters of Charity and are therefore not in any manner endorsed by the international organization Daughters of Charity, or its likenesses. If at all this website is used to promote any fundraising activity of the Daughters of Charity, links will be provided to their international website with details of the charity event mentioned. All the information provided on this website is to the author’s best knowledge, true and accurate.

Why We Chose The Daughters Of Charity?

There are quite a few religious organizations in this world, and many of them are charitable. However, we chose only one particular one to furnish on our website, why so? Well the answer is twofold.

Firstly, there has never been another chartable missionary organization which has been able to grow as rapidly as the Daughters of Charity. The concept of religious women coming together and taking vows to battle poverty and other social evils in the name of god is something which resonated through all cultures in all parts of the world, and due to this worldview, the Daughters of Charity were able to implement themselves into various world cultures. The second reasons is that apart from being a force of goodwill, the Daughters of Charity have also been a source of female empowerment which this world desperately requires. And hence portraying the stories of women who through centuries have given up all worldly positions to help those in need seemed like a good way to send the message of female empowerment.
