Catholic Relief Services is the international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. CRS was founded in 1943 by the Catholic Bishops of the United States to serve World War II survivors in Europe. Since then, we have expanded in size to reach more than 130 million people in more than 100 countries on five continents. CRS is using innovative approaches to meet the world's toughest humanitarian problems and helping the people in greatest need, wherever we find them. CRS' relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, health, agriculture, water, education, microfinance, peacebuilding and partnership.



In the IAC Exhibition Hall, Catholic Relief Services is Booth 216. Please visit us to learn more about our technical work on HIV/AIDS.
