Syria’s escalating civil war has killed more than 100,000 people. Tragically, the death toll continues to rise. As a result, out of Syria and into neighboring countries more than 2 million refugees have fled. Half are children. We are Catholics Confront Global Poverty, an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and Catholic Relief Services (CRS).
