But Peter said,

“I have no silver and gold, but I give you what I have; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”

(Acts 3:6)

     The Catholic Association for the New Evangelization in Latin America and Africa (CANELA) is a fully Catholic charity that supports men and women who bring the light of the Gospel to parts of Africa and Latin America where adherence to the faith is often in jeopardy.


     Founded by Catholics from throughout the US, and inspired by a similar charitable group in Germany, CANELA invites you to help the Catholic men and women of Africa and Latin America who have faithfully stepped into the breach to transform the lives of their fellow man.



    All of our staff are volunteers and several of them actually live in Latin America and Africa, so our overhead is very low (less than 5%) and our oversight is very high.
