Hi,

My name is Adrien I'm from France, I started to believe in the beginning of this year and now I'm trying to humbly learn and amend myself with the help of our Lord.

I'm looking to donate to some charitable organizations that share (or at least are not in contradiction) with Catholic or pro-life values, if you of know such charitable organizations (Asians or Africans would be great) please let me know, thank you and God bless you and yours.

The best thing to do is to give in your community that way you know where it is going.

For example maybe the Knights of Columbus are building someone a wheelchair ramp. Go and pay the bill.

Then you can see where your money went.

I just bought alter boy vestments.

I more or less agree with Stargazer. In particular, support the solid Catholic religious orders in your area.

I don't know of good charities doing work in Africa or Asia, though I expect there must be some. In the Americas, I think Food For the Poor has a pretty OK reputation. There are a lot of charities to avoid, particularly anyone taking money from Bill Gates, like Heifer.

You can find the contact information for every Diocese here:

https://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/country/

Look at the Diocese, then you may even want to donate at the parish level, every Diocese and Parish and Catholic School and Religious Congregation or Apostolate in that Diocese needs support.

Catholic Relief Services is worldwide.

I am under the impression that Aid to the Church in Need is good, so I give to them.I've also given to Mary's Meals. If anyone has objections to them, I'd be grateful to be informed.
