Respond to Urgent Needs in Haiti

A 7.2-magnitude earthquake devastated Haiti on Aug. 14. Families need your support.

We are sending over 2 million meals to Haiti, and aid is being distributed right now in the hard-hit communities. That’s just the first step in our long-term commitment to ease the suffering.

Cross Catholic Outreach has nearly two decades of experience working alongside Catholic ministry partners in Haiti. We coordinated millions of dollars in aid after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake, so we understand today’s needs.

Long-Term Support for Haiti’s Earthquake Survivors

Cross Catholic Outreach has nearly two decades of experience working alongside Catholic ministry partners in Haiti. We coordinated millions of dollars in aid after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake, which claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.

Tragically, this recent earthquake was twice as strong, and our partners on the ground report extensive damage to homes, schools and churches.

We are committed to standing with impoverished families in Haiti, no matter how long it takes.

Build homes in the rural are near Les Cayes, one of the hardest-hit communities in southwestern Haiti. Cross Catholic Outreach is sending metal roofing supplies to help our partner build one- or two-bedroom concrete homes to withstand inclement weather.

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.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures 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.
