Women all across the world are disproportionally affected by poverty and violence, and this is especially significant for women in impoverished countries where access to education and resources are limited. One of the most impactful ways to fight poverty is to support and empower women to achieve their full potential.
This Christmas, you can make a significant impact by giving the gift of safe shelter, education, medical aid, necessities and empowerment to women in need.
In Haiti, many rural women live in poverty and cannot afford medical care. As a result, they often do not realize they have a life-threatening illness until it is too late. Breast cancer, diabetes and other non-communicable diseases devastate families. You can help provide these women with the health education, testing, treatment and follow-up that can save their lives. Your gift will help to build a rural health clinic and bring relief to suffering women fighting to survive.
Thank You for Sending a Christmas Gift to a Family in Need
Cross Catholic Outreach
Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.
The Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog makes it fun and easy to extend the joy of Christmas to the poor. Instead of being filled with retail items, the catalog contains meaningful gifts for some of the world’s most impoverished families. Some gifts are lifesaving items such as Basic Medicines or Hygiene Products, while others are large projects such as Safe Homes or Clean Water. All gifts are sent on your behalf to grateful families in developing countries.
It’s easy to shop through the Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog. Simply browse through the categories and choose an item within your budget and close to your heart, such as Emergency Aid Blankets or Powdered Milk for Children. Select and sponsor one or more of these gifts, and you’ll make a meaningful impact on the life of a needy child or family overseas. It’s that simple!
Blessing the poor happens year-round. Some gifts in our Christmas Catalog are sourced locally, so there is no need to worry about international shipping. For items that require shipping, Cross Catholic Outreach works with partners in every country we serve to ensure Christmas Catalog gifts are delivered in a timely fashion.
Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the Christmas Catalog incurred through June 30, 2022, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
*Until midnight on December 31, all gifts to Women-Owned Farms from the 2021 Christmas Catalog, up to a total of $15,000, will be doubled.
