The humanitarian arm of the Catholic Church in the United States is also one of the largest and busiest relief agencies in the world. Catholic Relief Services (CRS.org) has been at ground zero for some of humanity’s most terrible crises.
CRS responders actively tend to earthquake victims in Nepal and Haiti, refugees from Ukraine and Syria, and drought-stricken families in the Horn of Africa.
Twenty-five percent of annual contributions to their popular Rice Bowl program go to hunger– and poverty-alleviation initiatives in American dioceses.
What is CRS doing right now?
- In strife-torn Gaza, a cash-for-work program pays people to help rebuild damaged and destroyed properties
- In Albania, a joint-operation with Caritas assists the government to stop a wave of human trafficking and to help victims return to safety
- In Tanzania, partner groups are trained to distribute toys to children to nurture social, muscle, sensory, and intellectual development
On August 1-2, please consider making a donation to CRS, and thank you for reaching out to those in desperate need of kindness and salvation.
