Donate to Catholic Charities Meeting Basic Human Needs
What Is Our Dignified Living Pillar?
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.
When you donate to Dignified Living, your money is used to support priests, missionaries and laypeople who work with their communities worldwide to provide food services, construction of safe structures and medical support to those who live in poverty. As we address their physical needs, we’re better able to share the Gospel and invest in their spiritual futures.
