Disaster Relief

WE RESPONDED TO EMERGENCIES WITH GOD’S LOVE

When an earthquake, flood or other natural disaster strikes, we extend God’s love by supporting the relief and recovery efforts of our partners on the ground.

Gifts given to our “Greatest Need” fund are particularly important to this strategy because they provide us with the flexibility to direct aid toward unexpected emergencies. With that flexibility, we can immediately ship urgently needed food, water and medicine to disaster survivors. Of course, a swift response from faithful donors to our emergency appeals is also critical. That gives us the extra boost we need to counter wide-scale suffering and effectively equip our ministry partners.

In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew, a devastating Category 4 storm, made landfall in southern Haiti. A staggering 2.1 million people were affected, and 1.4 million people needed humanitarian assistance. Cross Catholic Outreach immediately sprang into action to provide food and medicine and to build and repair homes and infrastructure.

Although we become involved in the early response phase of disasters, the focus of Cross Catholic Outreach’s disaster response strategy remains long-term recovery. After other relief agencies have moved on to the next popular cause, we commit to standing by local ministry partners to rebuild homes for displaced families, repair damages to critical facilities, and restore the livelihoods of working men and women who have lost everything.
