In the mountains of Mandeville, Jamaica, far from the tourist locations, poor families find themselves trapped in crushing poverty with no resources to improve their lives. The people in the countryside seek shelter in simple housing and often lack sufficient food, water and basic healthcare. Cross Catholic Outreach is partnering with the local diocese to empower the poor to start their own microbusinesses. By gifting farm animals, heads of households will have a small but valuable source of income to support their families, which will provide a sustainable source of income.

A generous gift of $165 subsidizes one family’s animal husbandry business for an entire year.
