CWS finds its roots in helping post-World War II Europe recover. In 1946, the initial focus was the provision of millions of pounds of food, clothing and medical supplies. More than 66 years later, the specific places and ways in which we work have changed. Yet the primary mission of feeding the hungry and helping the vulnerable remains the same.
