Jorge Gramajo, head of Friends for Health and Life and longtime Cross Catholic Outreach ministry partner, is passionate about saving children and babies from chronic malnutrition in Guatemala, but he needs your help!
They need our support. And our prayers.
Cross Catholic Outreach supports ministries such as Casa Niño Esperanza, run by the Sisters of Providence, that feed and care for children in Guatemala City. If not for the sisters’ ministry, many of these boys and girls would continue down a destructive path, resorting to violence or joining a gang just to survive.
One the children they’ve rescued is Isaac, 6, who lives with his nine siblings in a crumbling house made of old aluminum and rusted tin. His single mother collects plastic bottles to feed the children, but doing so isn’t enough to meet her family’s basic needs. When Isaac first arrived at Casa Niño Esperanza, he was malnourished and weak. But all of that changed thanks to the nutrition Isaac received from the sisters. Now he is growing in mind, body and spirit!
Your support will provide daily bread for children like Isaac at Catholic ministry partners around the world.
Fr. John Fortune, a Cross Catholic Outreach ministry partner based in Kenya, sent a recipe to share with supporters like you. As you prepare this bread to share at your table, remember to pray that the Lord will provide daily bread for hungry children.
4 – cups of all purpose flour
1 – teaspoon of baking soda
1 1/2 – tablespoons of salt
1 2/3 – cups of buttermilk
(Optional: For a sweet finish, add two tablespoons of honey.)
Mix all ingredients and bake at 375° for 30–35 minutes.
Giving monthly is a small way to have a big impact. Your regular support empowers our ministry to respond to urgent needs and fulfill our long-term projects across the world.

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, 2024, 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.
