Water

WE QUENCHED THEIR THIRST AND SHARED LIVING WATER

Cross Catholic Outreach relieves chronic dehydration and fights waterborne illness by providing abundant, clean water sources in impoverished communities.

The poor typically spend hours fetching dirty water from contaminated sources. Thanks to Cross Catholic projects, families we helped could turn on a tap in their yard or walk to their neighborhood pump-operated well for clean, safe water. As a result, children have the time to go to school, and mothers can focus on the other needs of their families.

In 2016, we funded water and sanitation projects in seven countries. One of these – a project in the Diocese of Santa Rosa de Lima – pumped clean water into the homes of 290 poor families in two villages. Another project drilled clean water wells for the Turkana tribe in the remote region of Lodwar, Kenya.

Santa Rosa Water

SANTA ROSA WATER – PROJECT 1356 – GUATEMALA

In the villages of Los Chilitos and La 46, families used to hike to collect brackish contaminated water for drinking and washing. But in 2016, Cross Catholic Outreach built water systems in these communities, pumping clean water into 290 individual homes! Now that families have clean, plentiful water in their homes, hygiene will improve as will the overall health of the community. Clean water changes everything!
