Catholic Relief Services

Catholic  Relief  Services  carries  out  the commitment of the  Bishops of the  United States  to  assist  the  poor  and  vulnerable  overseas. 

"I would like to ask you all to see a ray of hope as well in the eyes and hearts of refugees and of those who have been forcibly displaced." - Pope Francis

Behind the refugee crisis are people. Children, mothers and families who were forced to leave their homes  because  of  ongoing violence and fear. Our brothers and sisters around the world face uncertainty and are desperately seeking refuge. Catholic  Relief  Services  has  assisted  1.25 million Syrian  refugees in the Middle East and Europe. Working with and for them, we get to know them, learning not only about the fear and terror they fled, but also their hopes and dreams for a peaceful future. Many Americans believe that closing our doors to these innocent men, women and children is the way  to  protect our nation. Our experience shows that is not the case. We ask you to meet six Syrian refugees, who once lived in Syria, enjoying their families and thriving in fulfilling jobs, but now face only uncertainty. They deserve our compassion rather than our fear. To help you can visit: http://www.crs.org/media-center/syrian-refugee-crisis-7-things-you-can-do-help
