Our Catholic identity is at the heart of our mission and operations. CRS works to save, protect, and transform lives in need in more than 100 countries, without regard to race, religion or nationality. CRS’ relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, HIV, health, agriculture, education, microfinance, and peacebuilding. Many of our programs are implemented in very complex operating environments. To deliver these programs, CRS manages a fleet of approximately 1,400 light vehicles, an estimated 2,000 motorcycles, and an assortment of other specialty vehicles.
