What We're Thankful for This Week
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we wanted to take this opportunity to count our many blessings. At Catholic Relief Services we are immensely appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from our donors and supporters who make our work possible. We are thankful for our incredible staff and partners who work endlessly to make the world a better place and alleviate suffering. Finally, we show our gratitude to God for the thousands of little miracles we witness every day overseas when we see antiretroviral medicines working, children able to attend school for the first time, and emergency food rations delivered to families who have lost everything in a devastating storm.
Please read these stories and watch these videos. We wish you and your family a blessed and peaceful holiday. Happy Thanksgiving!
