Persecuted and Forgotten?

Aid to the Church in Need helps Chrisitans around the world

who are persecuted by violence and opressed by terror.



Founded in 1947 as a Catholic aid organisation for war refugees and recognised as a pontifical foundation since 2011, Aid to the Church in Need is dedicated to the service of Christians around the world, wherever they are persecuted or oppressed or suffering material need.

This is carried out entirely from private donations as our foundation receives no public funding. Together with hundreds of thousands of donors and project partners, we support Christians around the world under our guiding principle ‘Information, prayer and action’.

In addition, we are committed to religious freedom and reconciliation across all faiths. Our long-standing experience and belief in the power of charity has encouraged us to continue on this path and to inspire people for our work around the globe.

Today,we can rightly claim that our name says it all. We now support some 5,000 Catholic Projects each year in over 140 countries - many of these over the long term. In this way, we frequently remain in crisis areas when other aido rganisations have long since left.
