You Can Stand with Migrants and Refugees

Where can you go when your entire world is shattered?

For a child forced to leave behind the only home they’ve ever known, or a mother fleeing Russia’s invasion while her son stays behind on the front lines, this is a question of life or death.

As we look to our brothers and sisters around the world — those who have been forced from their homes due to shelling, bombings, and food and water shortages; those who have made the difficult but courageous decision to migrate abroad in search of new opportunities and a better life for themselves and their families — it’s imperative to ask ourselves: How can I help them?

By donating, you can extend a hand to those displaced, afraid and suffering. Your donation can provide life-saving prescription medication or ensure that a family has a safe place to sleep. 

CNEWA is working hand in hand with leaders of the local Catholic churches who are providing shelter, safety, health care and nourishment on the ground to all those who are in need.

Whether that means providing psychological counseling to Ukrainian families fleeing from war, essential medical care for refugees in Ethiopia, food aid to displaced Iraqis in Jordan or spiritual support and educational opportunities for African and Filipino migrant workers in Lebanon and Israel … The work we do with our partners on the ground is vital and reflects Pope Francis’ mandate to serve as builders of the kingdom. 

Will you join us in our mission of care and compassion?

Your generosity has a direct impact on the lives of migrants and refugees around the world. Help those who have experienced incredible grief, suffering and uncertainty, let them know that they are loved — that they deserve the chance to live in peace, in stability and in dignity, just like you. Whatever financial support you can offer, do know that your gift brings comfort to the many people we serve.

Your gift will help us help those facing unimaginable decisions. With your support it sends a message of security and possibility to your brothers and sisters in need around the world.

Because there is no “them” and “us.” There is only us.

Thank you for your support.
