“Having migrated to a new country, I found myself facing numerous challenges. Catholic Charities became my pillar of support, offering not only essential services but also a sense of community and understanding. Now, I’m inspired to give back. Volunteering my time with Catholic Charities is my way of paying forward the kindness I have received. Thank you to all the generous donors of the Annual Catholic Appeal who have impacted my life.”
