Construction of churches and church facilities
Particularly in areas of crisis, churches and church facilities are often destroyed by violence. We support reconstruction in these areas because a church is the centre of the life of faith and even the smallest chapel provides people with hope and a spiritual home.
Where the faith is growing, such as in Africa, Asia and Latin America, help is often needed to build new infrastructure. Aid to the Church in Need provides assistance for the construction of churches, monasteries, pastoral centres and mission stations, thereby safeguarding the pastoral work of the Catholic Church worldwide.
In 2020 our benefactors gave us the means to assist with the construction and repair of approximately 744 churches and ecclesiastical facilities.
