THE WORK OF THE CHURCH DURING THE CORONAVIRUS
DONATE

ACN has been supporting many religious communities to live their charisma of caring and serving the most needed ones for years. In Ukraine, religious sisters are on the frontline in the battle against Covid-19; they bring the love of God to the suffering ones. They are nurses, caregivers of the elderly and parish agents who help those that have nothing and nobody.

SUPPORT THEM!

Founded in 1947 as a Catholic aid organization for war refugees and recognized as a Pontifical Foundation since 2011, Aid to the Church in Need is dedicated to the service of Christians around the world, through information, prayer and action, wherever they are persecuted or oppressed or suffering material need.

Poor Christian communities which have been going through hard moments will be even more affected by the coronavirus.

They need you!

While about one-third of humanity is in quarantine, the most vulnerable ones are exposed to a new menace: CORONAVIRUS. This virus will not only affect their health condition but also will devastate the economy leading these poor people into a worse situation. 

Make a donation so that we can continue this work of mercy.

ACN helps Saint Francis of Sales’ missionaries in UGANDA

Base communities help fight coronavirus..

ACN supports religious in the fight against Covid-19

The country is in quarantine due to the pandemic and that has led to increased poverty since they cannot work. The missionaries have decided to feed 100 families who no longer have anything to eat. They are families of 6 to 10 people who, in addition to feeding them, also receive disinfectants and vitamin C.

ACN has been helping the empowerment of small Christian Base Communities for many years. Thanks to these help, today the Church can entrust the relief works, in a more orderly and effective way, to these communities. We are certain that ACN’s benefactors have never thought that these base communities would be sources of comfort during the Coronavirus crisis. (Sr. Christin SCCs)
