Populorum Progressio Foundation

On a mission to help the poor in Latin America and the Caribbean

Recently, at the request of Cardinal Turkson, prefect of the Dicastery for promoting Integral Human Development, Cross Catholic Outreach formed a partnership with the Populorum Progressio Foundation, which was established by the Church with the expressed purpose of serving the poor in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Through Cross Catholic Outreach’s new relationship with Populorum Progressio, we are committed to funding 17 different projects throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Populorum Progressio Partnership Projects

AGRICULTURE PROJECTS

Your support for the Church’s agriculture programs will encourage struggling farmers to improve crop yields. It will also provide them with the tools they need to be self-sustaining, while helping them to care for God’s creation.

MICROENTERPRISE PROJECTS

By supporting the Church’s efforts to provide small business opportunities for the poor, hardworking men and women will be able to pursue income-generating activities and become self-sufficient. Honest labor will be honestly rewarded, and dignity will be restored.

MEDICAL
PROJECTS

Not only are antibiotics, bandages and non-prescription drugs rare, some families even struggle to find clean, safe water to wash out a wound. Join the Church in her global mission to comfort the sick, save lives, and bring health and hope to those who need it most.

WATER
PROJECTS

By supporting the Church’s efforts to provide sanitary wells and community water systems for the poor, you will bring profound change. Families will no longer be forced to gather water from contaminated sources.

PRINCIPLES WE TEACH

Human Dignity • Human Equality • Association Participation • Stewardship • Common Good • Protection for the Poor • Human Life

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for this project incurred through June 30, 2020, 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.
