It was Founded in 1947 as a Catholic aid organization for war refugees and recognized as a papal 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, oppressed or suffering material need.
