Catholic Relief Services, the official overseas humanitarian and development organization of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, is on the ground in Afghanistan working diligently to help families in crisis. We can all help them in their work in two ways:
Donations for CRS Afghanistan:
Please help families in Afghanistan. Afghan parents are struggling to provide their children with good, clean water and education. When you give, you provide immediate assistance for our Afghan brothers and sisters. Please give a vital gift today: https://support.crs.org/donate/support-afghanistan
Urge Congress to Provide Funding for Credible Humanitarian Organizations:
CRS leadership and government relations team are actively engaged in discussions with U.S. government officials regarding Afghanistan. We urge Congress, in discussions with the Administration, to ensure that robust and flexible funding be provided through respected credible organizations experienced in Afghanistan.
