CRS Emergency Relief

Help rush humanitarian aid and emergency relief to immediate and ongoing crises around the world. Please donate to help survivors of these emergencies:

Humanitarian Crisis in the Middle East

Conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Gaza have forced millions of people to flee to neighboring countries or to other locations within their own countries. Refugees and displaced families need shelter, food, water and medical care. CRS and our Church partners are helping them, but the violence and hardship continue to escalate. Please help by making a generous gift.


   

Ebola Outbreak in West Africa

Your help is urgently needed to help CRS scale up our response to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus. CRS and our partners are rapidly going door to door handing out hygiene kits and information on preventing infection, and producing radio programs to educate people about the virus. We need your help to contain the spread of this horrific disease.


   

South Sudan Emergency

Ongoing conflict in South Sudan has forced more than 1.7 million people from their homes. Farming has been disrupted and hunger looms. We need your help to provide emergency relief and support, including food, agricultural seeds and tools, water and sanitation, and shelter.


   

Humanitarian Crisis in Central African Republic

In the Central African Republic, nearly 1 million people have fled their homes to escape violence, and a reported half of the country’s population is in need of help. Your prayers and donations are urgently needed.
