A Catholic charity serving our suffering and persecuted brothers and sisters around the world since 1947
Another year begins, But the needs are much the same
Last year saw historic challenges and struggles for the entire world. Over 1.7 million deaths due to COVID, and millions more affected in countless other ways because of the virus.
For our persecuted and suffering faithful, COVID only compounded the existing dire circumstances they were already living in.
Particularly n countries like Lebanon, Syria, Mozambique, Iraq, Nigeria, and Pakistan, 2020 saw Christians suffering at alarming rates. Our donors reached out and aided faithful in harm’s way.Your generosity was a blessing, especially while going through your own troubles.
But while the year ended, the needs unfortunately do not.
Thank you for allowing us to use your gift for wherever the need is greatest – and that need is great in so many regions and for so many of God’s vulnerable right now.
May this New Year bring hope, health and happiness to you and your loved ones.
