The LDS church does work with Catholic charities, there are some places where the charities have been established, and the two churches work together to fill the needs of those in that area.

The LDS church will utilize Catholic charities in countries where we don't have a presence or access. Catholic charities are pretty well everywhere, they do a wonderful job. East Timor, Kosovo, and the Russian 'stans are some off the top of my head. Every article I read about with the Humanitarian Center mentions that they work with Catholic charities, with the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, UNICEF (ick). Isn't the point that the aid is getting to the people who need it, regardless of who delivers it or provides it or whatever?

If I remember correctly, there was an article posted about the RC church and the Mormons working togather in some countries.
I find it a bad thing for the RC church to do. We are told not to be equally yoked believers and non-believers. If the two are still working togather, I would hope it ends.
The Mormon church piggybacks on Christian missionary efforts. After the Christian missionaries are established, the Mormons come in and proselytize to the Christian converts. Reason enough not to become yoked with the Mormons.
