Support provided

We have been entrusted with the mission to promote the Roman Catholic faith and values by supporting Roman Catholic charities, congregations, foundations, trusts, associations and other entities, through donations.

Health & Education

Our aim is to promote the education of the public in the Roman Catholic values, to assist people who are in need including children, the elderly, sick and disabled persons, and to advance the education of people in the values of the Roman Catholic faith so that they may develop their lives according to such values.

Renovation of religious buildings

We participate to the promotion of the Roman Catholic Faith by financing the erection, renovation and maintenance of churches and religious buildings, but also schools, hospitals, and other roofs for the underprivileged.

More generally our aim is to support any serious Roman Catholic project with an important social and humanitarian impact that promotes the Roman Catholic values and messages of charity, compassion, respect, tolerance and love of one’s neighbour.

Facts & Figures

Through dedicated Christians, the Catholic Church, in all dioceses, parishes, congregations, and associations everywhere, since its inception, has been at the service of all men, and of all mankind, irrespective of origins, nationalities or convictions.

The Church is active in various sectors of the social field. Specifically: Relief of poverty, Education, Health, Migration and refugees, Family and life.

The core-values consist in promoting the importance of serving the poor and the sick, the brothers in need, thanks to the love of God, that is present in each suffering person.

Our aim is to show that social-charitable initiatives do work and to inspire vocations at the service of those in need and support these initiatives through Donations and Advice.

The Catholic Church is the largest Non-Governmental Organisation in the World.
The Catholic Church is active in various fields such as

Health

The Catholic Church is one of the biggest global health providers. It runs thousands of hospitals and dispensaries as well as houses for people who are elderly, chronically ill or who have physical or learning disabilities. With over 120,000 social and healthcare institutions world-wide, the Catholic Church is in many developing countries one of the key partners of the State in healthcare delivery, providing services in remote areas to rural low-income populations, enabling them to access services that would otherwise be out of their reach.

Relief of poverty

The Catholic Church works alongside people living in poverty –in countries both rich and poor– to end their suffering and to help them reach their full potential. Extreme poverty can only be ended if income and opportunity are more equal and human rights are fully promoted. The Church has extensive experience helping persons in need throughout the world operating many missions, schools, health structures and humanitarian groups. Much of the funding for poverty-focused international assistance is not given to foreign governments, but rather to catholic organizations  that work directly with poor and vulnerable communities.

Education

The Church promotes and supports primary and secondary literacy projects to combat illiteracy and the dropping out of compulsory schooling; promotes an education of quality for all; attends the needs and the demands of different social and cultural environments; defends the freedom of education, and works to ensure that freedom is effectively exercised.

Refugees and Migrants

The Catholic Church accompanies migrants and refugees in their journey. The Catholic Church seeks to understand the causes of migration, but it also works to overcome its negative effects, and to maximize its positive influence on the communities of origin.

Protection of Family and Life

The life and dignity of every person must be respected and protected at every stage and in every condition. The right to life is the first and most fundamental principle of human rights that leads the Catholic Church to actively work for a world of greater respect for human life and greater commitment to justice and peace. For instance, the Catholic Church provides support to millions of people living with HIV around the world.

Our aim is to make this worldwide humanitarian link visible to the public and to share several valuable projects with you.

We support serious Roman Catholic projects with an important social and humanitarian impact that promote the Roman Catholic values.
