Help Us Provide Emergency Aid For Ukraine

100% of all donations will be used to provide humanitarian relief to refugees and our brothers and sisters suffering in Ukraine right now.
Those in need will be supplied with food, water, clothing, shelter, medicine, etc. Thank you for caring and for showing immense generosity. God bless you.

Humanitarian Aid - ukraine

If you are able, please make a donation to help the faithful of Ukraine.

The war is nearly four months old, and the needs are both immediate and long-term.

“The worst consequences of the war will not be immediate, but will drag out. The psychological, spiritual, physical and humanitarian consequences, as well as those on the family, will probably be felt later. The healing is a process,” says Bishop Radoslaw Zmitrowicz, an auxiliary in the Diocese of Kamyanets-Podilskyi.

With your help, we will respond to those in distress, whatever the needs, whenever we are needed.

Help the Children - lebanon

One of our project partners, a devoted Sister serving both Syria and Lebanon told us recently, “Please do not let Lebanon fall.”

The country’s catastrophic economic meltdown is affecting every aspect of society, touching every household. Shortage of food, medicine, clothing – just about anything you can imagine a family would need to survive.

One part of society Lebanon is gradually losing are its Catholic schools. Schools that have become a second home for children, a place of safety, a place where they are given one meal a day — food they may not be able to receive at home.

You can help these children and these schools survive.

Abuja under terrorist attacks: Archbishop decries insecurity and inequality

Although the archbishop is skeptical that the ruling party will allow the 2023 vote to be fair, the Church has been encouraging everyone to register and to try and change the country through the ballot box. The worst that can happen, he adds, is for the ruling party to use the violence and instability as an excuse to postpone the elections indefinitely.

Lebanon: ‘the situation makes you want to cry, but we have hope’

But the port explosion was only the latest in a series of tragedies to hit Lebanon. Only a couple of years earlier, a financial crisis had sent the Lebanese pound tumbling, losing 20-fold its value in relation to the dollar. All of this was compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, of course.
