How to send money to overseas missions

I have a very good Polish friend who is a priest and has a mission in Kiabakari, Tanzania. There is a school, where you can sponsor a child (or more than 1). I have tried

  1. Check (they can’t/won’t cash them in Poland)

  2. Bank transfer. There is a $40 fee on both sides:(:mad:

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.:slight_smile:

Try through Catholic Charities. They may have already a fund or program that funds such endeavors, and donate through them.

Paypal might work. They have a presence in Poland and charge between a half percent and two percent for International money transfers.

yes, I believe Catholic Relief servers is the safe way to give to world relief. Peace,Carlan.

Call your bank and see if you can purchase an international money order.
