One of the hardest and most painful experience a person may go through is the a burn injury because it affects the person in many different aspects of their life. There are the physical and emotional injury and sometimes as a result of the fire, burned victims may lose all their belongings and everything that they own. These survivors need every bit of help they can get from housing, furniture, clothes, food and other basic life needs.
Catholic Charities has been helping people in need since its foundation; among these people are burned victims. Catholic Charities provides assistance to help these people meet their basic needs including rent assistance, utility assistance, food, clothing, medical supplies and prescription drug assistance, shelter, transportation, community information and referrals, and other services.
