Care for Our One Planet, One Family

Rising temperatures. Longer and more extreme droughts. More intense rainfall and dangerous storms. As we experience the consequences of climate change in the United States, we recognize that communities around the world—those who have contributed the least to climate change—are being impacted the most.

Across the world, Catholic Relief Services is working shoulder-to-shoulder with communities to survive in the face of climate change. But surviving is not enough. We must work together and act now to protect our planet so our sisters and brothers can thrive.
