When you donate to Catholic Relief Services, you help us respond to emergencies, natural disasters and health crises around the world—like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your support helps communities prepare for disasters before they arrive and respond to emergencies when needed.

After decades of violent conflict and the collapse of the government following the withdrawal of the U.S. military, families in Afghanistan now face a devastating drought, surges of COVID-19. And like so many countries, children—more than 40%—do not have access to education.

Your gifts allow us to immediately and efficiently respond to refugee needs in Afghanistan, typhoons in the Philippines, health crises like COVID-19 and many other disasters outside of the United States. You provide support to so many in need, including those affected by disasters and ongoing conflicts and hardships.

These unrestricted donations fund our local programs and partners on the ground in 114 countries. And CRS will support our most vulnerable brothers and sisters overseas with food, shelter, clean water and medical care long after the emergency fades from the spotlight.

For more than 75 years, Catholic Relief Services has been responding immediately when emergencies occur—sometimes before they are reported by the media—thanks to you.
