Donate to Catholic Child Poverty Charities
It can be easy to become blind to the blessings God has given us throughout our lifetime. However, not everyone has access to the same opportunities we do. On any given day, around one billion children around the world are living in poverty. Out of these, thousands of children die every day due to preventable causes such as hunger, thirst or the lack of medical access.
These devastating statistics not only affect developing countries, but they also encompass children who live in our own nation. A quarter of all children in rich countries live in poverty, which affects their physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health. With statistics like these, you might be wondering how you could possibly help. What good can our small amount of money do to help hungry children? You may be surprised by the answer.

In the past 20 years, the number of people living in poverty worldwide has been cut in half, and the rate continues to decline every year. This success is due in large part to people just like you who feel called by the Lord to share their blessings with the poor and give to Catholic child poverty organizations. No matter how much you choose to donate, your gift will have a profound impact on a community’s ongoing physical and spiritual well-being.
