At least half of the world’s population lacks access to essential medical care, and the extremely high cost of health services is pushing families around the world into poverty. Meanwhile, the availability and quality of medical services in the developing world, resulting in the rampant spread of disease and untimely deaths among all age groups.
Help God’s children become healthier and more self-sufficient when you come to the aid of Christian doctors, nurses and medical technicians in the countries we serve.
Basic medicines are essential to the work of Christian doctors and volunteers serving the destitute in developing countries. They often treat patients in villages so remote that even the most basic medical supplies — such as aspirin, bandages and disinfectant — are unavailable. Your gift will send basic medicine that could save a life!

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.
