The Caribbean Centre for Family and Human Rights (CARIFAM) is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to protecting the family, human rights and human dignity. We advocate for full enjoyment of fundamental human rights for all persons and for the strengthening of the family unit as an essential foundation of these rights.
Our ongoing programs are aimed at alleviating poverty, improving access to quality health care and education, and giving people the tools and information they need to empower themselves and their communities.We work directly with individuals, families, and communities with full respect for their dignity, cultural and religious beliefs.

Check out the CARIFAM Song, written by Rev. Philip Gumbs. Lyrics below:
There’s a storm that’s raging all over the world
Truth is falling; the night is dark and cold
Hear the cries of the unborn – cries for mercy
Who’ll stand in the storm with love so warm
For every heart that bleeds
Driven by convictions that burn in darkest night
Compelled by compassion we’re
healing hearts and saving lives
Across the Caribbean Sea we stand for the family
We’re CARIFAM and our arms are open wide
There’s a voice that’s calling for healers to arise
Go forth in power speaking words of life
Truth will make captives dance in freedom
Make God number one make the family strong
And we’ll have a mighty nation
