Aid to the Church in Need – our history

For 70 years now, Aid to the Church in Need has followed a single mission: to build a bridge of love that enables the suffering and persecuted Christians worldwide to witness their faith and inspire those who help them. ACN acts under the guiding principle: information, prayer and action. In fulfilling its work an essential part of ACN’s mission is to inform about this hidden suffering of Catholics in the world. We are committed to religious freedom and reconciliation across all faiths. To know more about the Pontifical foundation, watch the video
