CWN Editor's Note: The US bishops founded Catholic Relief Services in 1943, and the majority of the members of its board of directors are bishops. In responding to the coronavirus, the organization announced that it is “gearing up its response in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Nigeria. Activities will include risk awareness and hygiene education campaigns, as well as the distribution of hygiene supplies like soap.”
