What You Help Make Possible

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of supporters in the United States, Catholic Relief Services can ensure that help reaches those who need it most. As part of a plan that will span 5 years and beyond, CRS will spend more than $200 million to help the people of Haiti recover from their catastrophic loss.

CRS has received $205 million for Haiti relief and rebuilding. Of this, $133 million came from private donors, including $50 million received from special collections for Haiti in Catholic dioceses across the United States.
