Join the Relief Effort for Hurricane Eta

Hurricane Eta, a Category 4 hurricane, reached the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua in the early morning of November 3.

Sustained winds of 140 MPH ripped roofs from homes, uprooted trees and knocked down power lines. Torrential rain, flash flooding and landslides are quickly becoming life-threatening problems across Central America.

As many as 3 million people may be affected, as well as our Catholic ministry partners serving the poor.

Cross Catholic Outreach is coordinating to deliver much-needed relief supplies, including food and medical aid to ministries in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

  • More than a quarter-million meals were provided to our ministry partners in Nicaragua for rapid distribution.
  • In Honduras, medical aid is now being administered to those seeking refuge at temporary shelters.

We have accomplished a lot already — but, our brothers and sisters recovering from the storm still need help. It will take time and resources to help the homeless, treat the injured and restore lives.

Please join us in praying the Protection from Storms prayer and giving generously to help us deliver immediate aid to our brothers and sisters in need.

Cross Catholic Outreach

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, 2021, the close of our ministry’s new 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.
