Clean water positively transforms lives because it reduces illness, eases the labor burden on children and helps local farmers grow bountiful crops to support healthy diets. While these are undeniable benefits, a safe, reliable water source is important for another reason as well. It restores the dignity of families and leads them to explore the Living Water offered by Jesus Christ.
With your help, Cross Catholic Outreach has been able to establish lifesaving community wells and water systems around the globe. In fiscal year 2021 alone, your generosity blessed families in 12 countries with water and sanitation projects. In Haiti, for example, Cross Catholic Outreach’s donors helped Father Glenn Meaux build two wells and repair seven existing wells through the ministry of the Kobonal Haiti Mission. In Kenya, your support empowered Father Fabian Hevi’s Water for Life initiative to build 10 wells, benefiting an astounding 67,177 people!
