Catholic Relief Services reaches out in the name of all Catholics to give assistance and Christ-like love to those facing devastating loss around the world. Currently they are hard at work on the ground in the Philippines and helping with the Ebola crisis and so much more.
Donations to Catholic Relief Services will feed hungry families, provide health care and clean water in remote villages, help farmers to grow better crops, protect orphans and vulnerable children, and allow for an immediate response to emergencies.
