DR Congo have a new home. However, a daily meal is scarce.
When you wake up in the morning, you might throw off the covers of a warm bed, fry up a tasty pan of bacon and eggs, take a hot shower and head out the door to your job. It’s hard to imagine anything less. But the fact is, millions of people around the world are struggling due to a lack of basic resources. Nearly half of the world’s population lives on less than $2.50 per day — not nearly enough to pay for sufficient food, water or health care. Their lives are filled with uncertainty, and many are in desperate need of the basic resources we often take for granted.
That’s why Catholic World Mission exists — to bring a message of hope to those who feel hopeless. Our Dignified Living projects allow us to change the lives of disadvantaged brothers and sisters in Christ around the world by meeting their physical and spiritual needs.
We hope that you’ll join with us in working alongside these communities to meet their needs and share Christ!

Through our Dignified Living pillar we have responded to the call of the Catholic Church to perform Corporal Works of Mercy for our brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world through: feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, sheltering the homeless, and visiting the sick. Responding to Christ’s call in Matthew 25:34-40.
“Jesus does not demand great actions from us, but simply surrender and gratitude.” Saint Therese of Lisieux
