Aid granted by region

€84.6 million

In 2017, the regional focus of our aid projects was Africa, the Middle East as well as in Asia. In all our project work, the dialogue with the local Church is particularly important to us, for the local bishops and religious know best where the need is greatest and which relief measures must be taken.

May the Lord make your prayers and your commitment to the mission of the Church always bring forth more fruit through the world, especially where it is suffering from spiritual and material needs or is discriminated against and persecuted.
