I read this information when I received a request for a donation from CRS, and since they operate because of donations, I pay attention and donate occasionally. Here is the information everyone should know:
5 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES:
1. CRS serves people in 91 countries overseas based on their needs, not their religion, race or nationality.
2. CRS is devoted to preserving the sacredness and dignity of all human life.
3. CRS has been serving the poor for more than 70 years.
4. CRS is very efficient: 93 percent of our expenditures go directly to help poor people overseas.
5. CRS needs you to help us reach more than 150 million people who are desperate for life’s basic necessities.
I have read that CRS has supplies stored all over the world in case of emergencies. They were in Haiti before the last disaster, helping people recover from an earthquake.
I am always totally amazed at what CRS is able to do with donations. How much more efficient than the Governments of the world.
