When a natural disaster occurs in a third world country, no one is ready for it.
The human impact from natural disaster is often not realized until years after the event. Disasters hinder societies from moving forward, forcing a focus on immediate needs rather than long-term solutions to societal growth. Food, water, housing and infrastructure become the priority for many societies in the wake of disaster. Particularly in third world areas, natural catastrophes strip communities from whatever momentum they may have had in moving toward self-sufficiency. People fall deeper into poverty and dependence. The ramifications may span generations.
At Catholic World Mission we aim to restore and to provide aid to these stricken communities after devastation. Read their stories below and learn more about how you can help provide aid to those most in need.
We have relief efforts around the world. Missionaries are dedicated to providing physical and psychological care to the people after devastation strikes.
Donate Now so together we are ready to respond quickly to natural disasters that plague our brothers and sisters in Christ. When disaster strikes, every dollar makes a difference.
When you look at the poverty that exists around us, it can be easy to wonder how your gift is being used. But God can use even the smallest acts of kindness and faith in incredible ways. With your donation, you have:
Thank you! We encourage you to continue to donate to Disaster Relief in support of Christ-centered organizations responding to the immediate and long-term assistance of those affected by natural disasters. And, above all, we hope you’ll support us in prayer as we bring the message of Jesus to a world in need of hope.
