Catholic Relief Services Brings Help to Haiti
Generous contributions from Catholics across the country to Catholic Relief Services are helping thousands of Haitians after the devastating earthquake on January 12th.
Catholic Relief Services has provided food and other emergency supplies to more than 90,000 people through two large sites and parish distribution sites across Port-au-Prince. Catholic Relief Services medical teams are treating 300 per day.
For more information on Catholic Relief Services relief efforts in Haiti as well as prayer resources, educational resources, and information on how you can help with the long-term rebuilding process, go to www.crs.org.

Catholic Relief Services is the global outreach arm of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. They do great and lasting work for social justice and charity. A really effective organization!
