Medicine Impact

WE HEALED THE SICK AND
MENDED BROKEN HEARTS

In 2018, Cross Catholic Outreach shipped more than $250 million worth of medicines and medical supplies around the world. Believing that every life is precious to God, we partner with free and affordable health clinics to provide treatment and preventative care to patients who would otherwise be unable to access that lifesaving support. The programs we work with provide various services, including health consultations for children, prenatal care for expectant mothers, and antiretroviral therapy for sufferers of HIV/AIDS. Jesus came healing the sick, and as a testimony of his enduring grace, we strive to continue that merciful work on the earth.
 
For example, in Zambia we supported a mothers’ shelter at St. Joseph Health Center. And in Nicaragua, we funded Tim’s Clinic to purchase medications for poor families and fund the salaries of a pediatrician and pharmacy assistant.

This included medicines for asthma, respiratory illnesses and even cervical cancer, which can be expensive treatments for poor families.
