The Cuttack Roman Catholic Diocesan Corporation (CRCDC) was established on 22 December 1945 under Section 13 of Company Act for religious, charitable and educational purpose. The head office is located at Sayanagar, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, Eastern India. CRCDC works mostly in nine civil districts of Odisha, namely Kandhamal, Nayagarh, Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapara, Jajpur, Khurda, Boudh and Cuttack.
Under its credit there are many schools, rural feeder primary schools, hospitals and dispensaries, vocational training centres, orphanages, schools for the physically challenged, hostels for the poor boys and girls in the rural areas, community halls for social and religious gatherings, social centres for Self-Help Groups, women development centres and a peace centre for promotion of peace in various parts of Odisha.
As CRCDC is a charitable and non-profit making organization, it undertakes many works of charity among the poor and provides relief to people affected by natural and man-made calamities by medical assistance, food, clothing and drinking water distribution, rehabilitation programme, camp-counseling, visiting and caring for the sick, poor, needy, downtrodden, old and handicapped, and to promote community health care and nutrition in any manner as may be deemed expedient. The Organization also carries out agricultural programmes among the villagers by animating and conscientizing them about method of cultivation, water conservation and marketing possibilities.
Eventually, CRCDC has been contributing much towards the social, economic and spiritual development of the people through education, health care, charity, and empowerment of women, child welfare, relief and rehabilitation, coordination of youths, seminar and many other social awareness programmes. The untiring efforts of our personnel at grass root levels, village levels and regional levels have benefited many and would benefit many more.
The infrastructure provided is lifelong platforms of development. The participation of local leaders, village elders, volunteers and youth gives tooth to our committed and concerted efforts in reaching out to many people. We prefer to co-operate and collaborate with the Central and State Government agencies for the overall development of people.
In the coming years, besides continuing with the areas where we have reached out already, we plan to reach out to more areas.
