While many people in the developed world take clean drinking water for granted, an estimated 780 million people don’t have access to clean drinking water and 2.5 billion people do not have safe sanitation. The majority of clean water issues are in rural areas of developing nations, and the result is a startling number of hygiene-related diseases and deaths.
At Cross Catholic Outreach, we understand how clean and accessible water impacts a family’s health, efficiency, education, and economic progress. That’s why we are engaged in numerous projects that deliver safe water to poor communities for drinking, bathing, cleaning, and agriculture. Water is a gift from God, and with your help, we can deliver this life-saving gift to where it’s needed most.
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.
