Cross Catholic Outreach airlifted medical supplies to Haiti after a devastating 2021 earthquake. Grand’Anse Health & Development Association distributed these supplies to a network of rural health clinics in the Diocese of Jérémie.

Whenever disaster strikes, we are called to address the urgent needs of the poor and vulnerable. Your support has empowered Cross Catholic Outreach to mobilize its network of trusted partners on the ground — meeting both immediate needs and long-term recovery efforts.

Cross Catholic Outreach provided grants to 28 disaster relief projects in fiscal year 2021.

Our ministry relies on your generosity to deliver lifesaving disaster relief aid.  Your support gives us the flexibility to respond to unexpected emergencies as they arise and to support long-term recovery efforts for families that have lost their livelihoods.

Disaster Relief Project Spotlight

Haiti Earthquake Relief

On Aug. 14, 2021, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti — a temblor twice as strong as Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake that claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. Just two days later, Tropical Storm Grace lashed the same hard-hit communities with torrential rain, piling on misery for children and families that had already lost everything. Mudslides destroyed crops — many families’ only source of income — at the peak of the harvest season.

Through your support, Cross Catholic Outreach implemented a three-stage disaster relief plan to address immediate needs, including foodmedical care and temporary shelter. Major efforts are currently underway to repair and rebuild homes in the region, providing families a firm foundation to seize a brighter future.

Help Save Lives and Restore Hope

Provide a rapid and effective response when unexpected emergencies occur. Through your generous support, we can set our global shipping network in motion to begin transporting urgently needed food, water, medicine and other supplies to survivors as soon as possible.
