More than half of the citizens of Guatemala live below the poverty line. Many live in makeshift shacks that leak when it rains, buckle under strong winds and lack basic necessities. To help these families regain hope and dignity, Cross Catholic Outreach has partnered with the Diocese of Santa Rosa de Lima to build sturdy, cement-block houses with solid floors and waterproof roofs. Each home will be wired for electricity and will also include a clean-air stove, sanitary latrine and washbasin on the exterior.

Your generous gift will help build a sturdy cement-block home for a needy family in Santa Rosa de Lima, Guatemala.

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures to provide Christmas Catalog items to families and children in need incurred through June 30, 2020, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year.
