No one is saved alone 

This group is coordinated by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, in cooperation with Caritas Internationalis, and engages in dialogue with local churches to better understand the needs in communities so the Commission can provide support to local leadership in a way that best fits local needs

The group is also tasked with collaborating with charitable initiatives promoted by other Dicasteries of the Roman Curia, such as the Office of Papal Charities, the Pontifical Mission Societies and the Vatican Pharmacy.
