Aid to the Church in Need is at work in more than 140 countries, helping Christians who are persecuted, oppressed or in pastoral need.

Thanks to you, we are able to support more than 5,000 projects every year, helping the Church’s mission. From training seminarians for the priesthood to providing transport to help priests and Sisters reach the remotest communities, or building much-needed chapels, you are helping us to bring Christ to the faithful around the world.

In 2016, your donations meant that you were supporting 11,080 Religious Sisters and 10,760 seminarians in their training. That means one sister in every 62 and one seminarian in every 11, with 4,667 being in Africa, 2,900 in Latin America and 1,577 in Eastern Europe leading to 10.9% of our projects.
