At Catholic Relief Services, we have bold aspirations: to save lives and alleviate suffering, accelerate the end of poverty, hunger, and preventable disease, and to cultivate just and peaceful societies. In short, we want to be a catalyst for positive change in the world. Since 1943, we have been tireless in our commitment to the needs of vulnerable people around the globe. As a leading international humanitarian agency, guided by faith, we work in solidarity with our partners to uphold the dignity of all God’s children, and to pave the way to peace and prosperity.

Grounded, empowered and moved by our Catholic faith—and with Catholic teaching as our guide—our work knows no bounds. We go where we are called, to the most remote places, to achieve the greatest impact, alongside the world’s most vulnerable people. Bold and ambitious, we will not stop until all of God’s children can fulfill their God-given potential in thriving families and communities, in just, peaceful and vibrant societies, and in flourishing landscapes. 

We are working in 122 countries and reaching more than 255million of the world's poorest people each year with innovative solutions to tough problems like poverty, hunger, drought, disease and emergencies.

We work in close partnership with the Catholic Church around the world and local, national and international organizations that share our focus on finding ways to meet immediate needs while empowering communities for the long term.

Whatever obstacles the world puts in our way, we will not stop until all of God’s children can fulfill their human potential in thriving families and communities, just, peaceful and vibrant societies and flourishing landscapes.
