Servants of St. Camillus Disaster Relief Services (SOS DRS
is the international disaster relief organization of the Catholic
Order of the Ministers of the Infirm.
It is a network of Camillians and collaborators, men and women - lay people, priests, deacons, sisters and brothers
- who are committed to living their faith and the Camillian charism.
Members of the CTF respond as teams to man-made and natural disasters. They offer their pastoral presence,
professional healthcare competence and humanitarian support. At the disaster site and elsewhere, members of the
CTF live, work and worship together.
They are healthcare workers (doctors, nurses, dentists, midwives, community health workers, pharmacists);
pastoral care agents (trauma and HIV counselors; those who visit the sick; chaplains); students, translators
and other people committed to providing humanitarian support (food, clothing, logistics).
The CTF is committed to collaborating closely with like-minded organizations and the local church diocese.
