Please Help God's Faithful in South Sudan

In the last three years, more than 50,000 have died and nearly 2.5 million people have been forced from their homes.

With your support, Aid to the Church in Need is helping, in particular, the youngest victims of violence by funding Church programs like the House of Hope, started by The Missionaries of the Divine Word in the Parish of Lainya, where youth can play, learn to work as a team and do their homework.

Thank you and God bless you for any amount you can give today.

Success Story

Help a Christian Family in Iraq

Since the summer of 2014, some 3.3 million people have been forced to flee their homes within Iraq alone due to the cruelty of IS. A great many came from Mosul and its surrounding area.

Christians were given an ultimatum by the terrorists: to convert to Islam or be killed. As a result, there was an exodus of all the Christian families from the city itself and in the plain of Niniveh. Most fled to the region of Erbil in the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan.

The Catholic Church in Iraqi Kurdistan is now overwhelmed, trying to help the thousands of refugees with shelter, food, clothing, medical care and, in the longer term, schooling for their children.

It costs almost $338 to provide one family with basic necessities for six months.  Can you help today?
