#ExtraordinaryWomen
Religious life is the beating heart of the Church. It impacts the lives of so many around the world. The extraordinary women who embrace the Gospel and answer the call to go “and proclaim the Good News to all creation” (Mk 16:15) are the witness of God’s sublime and boundless love.
Our aid in Syria is not only a response to the dramatic humanitarian situation caused by the war; our help aims to prevent the Christian presence in the Middle East from being wiped out.

Our Mission is to support Christians in Need

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, through information, prayer and action, wherever they are persecuted or oppressed or suffering material need.

ACN supports every year an average of 6.000 projects in close to 150 countries, thanks to private donations, as the foundation receives no public funding.
