As Catholics, Pope Francis has called special attention to the refugee crisis in Europe. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is working with over 700,000 Syrian and Iraqi refugees in surrounding countries by providing relief services which include food, shelter, rental and medical assistance, and programs to help children overcome trauma. CRS is also responding to the growing migrant crisis in Europe by working in partnership with the Church in Greece, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Serbia to provide basic needs such as food, shelter, sleeping bags and mats, hygiene packages, and clean water. For more information and up-to-date field reports on CRS’s response to these crises, visit their website here.
Pope Francis has called on every Catholic parish and religious community in Europe to take in one refugee family.
