About us

Founded in 1926 by Pope Pius XI, Catholic Near East Welfare Association's (CNEWA) mandate is: to support the pastoral mission and institutions of the Eastern Catholic churches; to provide humanitarian assistance to those in need without regard to nationality or creed; to promote Christian unity and inter-religious understanding and collaboration; and to educate people in the West about the history, cultures, peoples and churches of the East. CNEWA does not have inflexible priorities-they are set based upon time, place and urgency of need. We do not compete; if other agencies are doing good work, we leave it to them. CNEWA addresses those needs that would otherwise "fall through the cracks," enabling the power of love to reach men, women and children in need.
