Pope Francis met with members of the Papal Foundation at the Vatican, a charitable organization in the United States dedicated to fulfilling the requests of the Pope for the needs of the Church.

The foundation has supported projects from disaster relief and hospital construction, to offering funds for aging priests and scholarships for seminarians in 121 countries around the world.

POPE FRANCIS
Your charitable outreach continues to extend to those on the peripheries of society who live in material, and frequently spiritual, poverty.

The Pope noted that charitable giving is especially important in times of war to manage the human consequences of conflict.

POPE FRANCIS
As we are witnessing in these days the devastating effects of war and conflict, you increasingly see the need to provide care and humanitarian assistance to its victims, to refugees and to those forced to leave their homelands in search of a better and more secure future for themselves and their loved ones.

Since its founding in 1988, the foundation has allocated more than $200 million in grants and scholarships to more than 2,000 projects selected by Popes Francis, Benedict XVI, John Paul II.
