Nutritious Milk, Healthy Bodies: Feeding Poor Children in Guatemala

A Simple but Incredible Gift to Nourish Guatemala’s Children

Guatemala has one of the highest rates of chronic childhood malnutrition in the world. There, even a simple glass of milk — something most of us take for granted — is a precious gift to a hungry child.

Milk is a rich source of calcium, protein, potassium, vitamins A and D, and more. Every glass is full of the nutrients Guatemala’s children need to stave off malnourishment and develop strong, healthy bodies.

Cross Catholic Outreach has a fantastic opportunity to buy full-cream milk powder in bulk at an excellent price. Your support empowers our ministry partners to provide the nourishing gift of milk to Guatemala’s abandoned children and orphans — at a cost of just 25 cents a glass! 

Hope for Esmeralda

Two-year-old Esmeralda (pictured) was abandoned by her parents at the hospital shortly after her birth. They believed they were too poor to care for her. Sadly, this is not uncommon.

Thanks to God, Esmeralda is now in the loving care of the Sisters of the Little Apostles of the Redemption at Our Lady of Comfort Children’s Home in Guatemala. The sisters are raising abandoned and orphaned children and are also feeding hundreds of hungry little ones, like Esmeralda.

With your blessing, Cross Catholic Outreach can support Catholic ministries on the front lines like the Sisters of the Little Apostles. With a simple but incredible gift of milk, you can help deliver a powerful, life-sustaining answer to minister to hungry children.
