Catholic Relief Services was founded in 1943 by the Catholic Bishops of the United States. Their mission is to use the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to assist the poor and disadvantaged: alleviating human suffering, promoting development, and fostering charity and justice throughout the world.
CRS is the official international relief and development agency of the U.S. Catholic community, and as such is committed to educating the people of the United States to fulfill their moral responsibilities toward our global brothers and sisters by helping the poor, working to remove the causes of poverty, and promoting social justice.
Please consider making a (tax-deductible) donation to CRS today. "Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me." (Matthew 25:40)
