Thank you for recognizing the challenges created by the world water crisis, and for taking such decisive action to help. By generously supporting the Church’s efforts to provide safe water and effective sanitation to families in developing countries, you have made an incredible difference in people’s lives
– Isaiah 12:3 –
Thousands of impoverished families in developing nations around the world rely on Cross Catholic Outreach to fulfill their basic need for clean, safe water — and you and other contributors make it possible for us to do this. Gifts like yours enable us to dig wells in remote areas of the world, improve sanitation, provide maintenance training and, in general, improve people’s lives so they can deepen their faith in Christ.
Father Fabian – Kenya
“[Water] saves the lives of most of these children. It also helps the spirituality of the people, giving them time to go to church. Priests call thanking you, saying, ‘You can’t imagine how many people are attending Mass!’” – Fr. Fabian
Suleima – Amigos for Christ, Nicaragua
Amigos for Christ employs locals as “promoters” to visit families and learn their needs, stimulate interest in water and sanitation projects, and educate them on health and hygiene issues critical to their well-being. Suleima is one those dedicated promoters who ensures that the community relationship with Amigos for Christ remains strong.
“I thank God for this opportunity. I asked God to put me in a place where I could be useful, and they put me here. I learned to love. To love the people. To love what God has given me.” – Suleima
Job Marthy – Kobonal Haiti Mission, Haiti
Over the years, the Kobonal Haiti Mission has installed more than 33 hand-pump community wells, providing clean water to poor families that had been relying on contaminated groundwater. Job Marthy is one of the many Kobonal villagers whose life has been transformed by a new community well.
“Collecting water is a complicated situation for older people. You have to fight to get water from the spring. It also causes many diseases. I’m old and cannot fight. Now I have water and I am thankful.” – Job Marthy
