Thank You for Providing Clean Water and Sanitation

God bless you for empowering our Catholic partners serving overseas to construct or repair 50 community water systems, providing 63,438 people with clean, abundant water. In addition, your gift sponsored critical training for 44,846 people, ensuring the upkeep of their new water supply and preventing the spread of diseases like typhoid and dysentery.

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

"With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation."

– Isaiah 12:3 –

You’ve Touched Their Lives

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

Over the course of six years, Cross Catholic Outreach collaborated with Fr. Fabian to complete water relief projects for 83,000 people in 27 villages throughout the Diocese of Lodwar in northern Kenya. Now, we are helping Fr. Fabian build water systems for villagers in southern 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

Bless more families with clean water
