Caritas Macao, formerly known as Mateus Ricci Social Centre, was founded by Fr. Luis Ruiz Surez, S.J. in 1951. Initially, the diverse charitable services it offered ranged from food supply, arrangement of lodgment, assistance rendered in processing of documents, job-seeking and school-seeking guidance, supports for the low income groups to become self-reliant. However, many of these services had been modified along with changes in social needs over the years.
