CRS Emergency Response
Catholic Relief Services responds to global emergencies--natural disasters, civil wars, etc.--as soon as they happen, partnering with other international aid agencies to begin sending aid as soon as possible. When emergencies take place, the U.S. Church holds an emergency appeal to raise funds to increase the response. CRS partners primarily with Caritas Internationalis, working from offices already established in the country in need.
We receive and post regular updates from CRS programs around the world, but you can always find the most up-to-date information at CRS.org!
