Thank You for Changing Lives in Kenya

Your generous and compassionate support of Fr. Fabian and the work of Good Samaritan Water Sanitation Services will give women, children and entire families a new lease on life, freeing them from the time-consuming and dangerous task of seeking water.

Make A Difference!

In countries such as Kenya many families are dealing with the devastating consequences of water scarcity — but the Church is working to make a difference! Together, we can empower Catholic leaders to provide clean water and improved sanitation for communities suffering from water scarcity and waterborne diseases.

To address the water issues plaguing poor communities, Cross Catholic Outreach is working with trusted ministry partners, like Father Fabian Hevi and Good Samaritan Water and Sanitation Services in Kenya.

Special Guest Speaker

Jim Cavnar

President, Cross Catholic Outreach

Jim Cavnar and a small group of colleagues launched Cross Catholic Outreach to support parishes and ministries that directly serve the world’s poor in their own communities. Jim’s career spans more than four decades in ministry management and leadership. Since it’s conception two decades ago, Cross Catholic Outreach has grown from a fledgling enterprise to a Vatican-endorsed charity in dozens of countries.

Transforming Communities Through Clean Water

Cross Catholic Outreach and Fr. Fabian are working toward the day when no children will risk their health or safety to quench their thirst. For six years, our water projects contributed to rapid transformation in the Diocese of Lodwar. Today, we are working on a long-term campaign to share that same blessing with the Archdiocese of Mombasa and the Diocese of Machakos in southern Kenya.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2023, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
