The Little Way Association is a charity that aims to help the poor, needy and sick in developing countries throughout the world.  For over 50 years the Association has provided assistance to those in need, currently raising around 4m each year.  Most of our supporters are Roman Catholics, but some of our benefactors belong to other Christian denominations and other faiths.  Any donation which is sent to us  by post, by banker's order, or online through this website is used entirely for the purpose(s) specified by the donor (we have a separate fund for administrative expenses). We make sure that the money goes to help those in the greatest need by ensuring that all projects we support are supervised by the local bishop or missionary society.  Our funds provide food, medicines and other aid for the hungry, sick, refugees, needy children, lepers and victims of natural disasters.  We give funds to help build small houses and schools, provide wells, roof mission chapels and support Missionary Priests, Sisters and Brothers in clinics, hospitals and orphanages.  In times of famine and drought we provide emergency relief.

“May St Therese, our patroness, intercede with  Our Lady and   Our Lord for us all.
