Although we have made huge strides aiding the world’s poor, approximately 10 percent of the global population still lives in extreme poverty. From food to water, education, sanitation, housing, orphans, the elderly, medical care, and disaster relief, the needs of the developing world are overwhelming. This is why we have identified and highlighted the greatest needs on this page to help you focus your charitable giving where it’s needed most right now.
Through collaborations with our ministry partners, Cross Catholic Outreach mobilizes the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Please browse this page to learn about the greatest needs in our project regions and how even the smallest donation can make a huge impact in the developing world.
When you select an aid project, your donation to that project will be used to cover any expenditures for the project incurred through June 30, 2019, 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.
