Catholic Relief Services, whose humanitarian aid stretches across the globe, was founded to help to help the dispossessed after World War II. With a new podcast, CRS is highlighting some of the colorful characters and memorable events that make up its history. CRS producer and content creator, Rebekah Lemke and podcast host, Nikki Gamer, share stories and explain why Catholic Relief Services’ work is as necessary today as it was 75 years ago.

You can listen to the anniversary podcast here.
