Catholic Relief Services

Given the recent significant increase in COVID-19 cases, CRS hopes to expand this assistance to a growing number of vulnerable families, including people suffering from COVID-19 who are isolating at home. CRS and Caritas Cuba are also making every effort to deliver critical medical supplies and personal protective equipment for health care workers and medical facilities.
