Website Review: Catholic Relief Services Site on which this review was based: http://www.catholicrelief.org

Description

Catholic Relief Services was founded in 1943 by the Catholic Bishops of the United States. Their mission is "to assist the poor and disadvantaged, leveraging the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to alleviate human suffering, promote development of all people and to foster charity and justice throughout the world." Though most of CRS's actual services are provided offline, this beautifully designed site does a wonderful job of informing readers about every aspect of CRS and its work.

Some of the organizations listed as "global partners" cause us to wonder about the direction of CRS' resources. For more information about CRS' questionable position on condoms see:
