Clean water changes lives — reducing illnesses, easing the labor burden on children, and helping local farmers grow bountiful crops that support healthy diets. Beyond that, safe, reliable water is a source of dignity that leads our most vulnerable brothers and sisters to the Living Water of Christ.
With your help, Cross Catholic Outreach provides lifesaving community wells and water systems. In 2020, your generosity blessed families in 12 countries with water and sanitation projects. In Nicaragua, you helped Amigos for Christ install much-needed water systems in communities that lack access to safe water sources. And in Pan de Azúcar, Dominican Republic, 885 people no longer rely on a dirty lagoon for water thanks to the new community water system you helped build.
