Laudato Si' - Our Common Home and Climate Change

Why This Matters

Catholic Relief Services is witnessing first-hand the effects of environmental degradation and climate change on poor and vulnerable people around the world. Today, developing nations are prone to major devastation as a result of climate-related disasters. Homes, livelihoods, crops, livestock and human lives are being destroyed in the wake of storms and floods. Severe hunger and disease often follow these disasters at a slower but just as deadly pace. CRS works to help the poor become more resilient to natural disasters and the effects of climate change.

Our relationship with the environment can never be isolated from our relationship with others and with God
