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.
Hundreds of villagers in Kobonal lack access to clean, safe water sources. Instead, they depend on contaminated rivers and wells for drinking water. With support from friends like you, Kobonal Haiti Mission’s founder, Father Glenn Meaux, will provide the most destitute families in the Diocese of Hinche with community well stations.
The hand pump wells inside the stations are freestanding, with no holding tanks. Each well has a cement wall around it for security and is open certain hours during the day. The water is free for the users, but they are encouraged to give a token amount that is put into a community fund for repairs on the wells. Your gift will help provide clean and safe drinking water for families in need!
In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating an ideal synergy for the greatest impact.
Giving monthly is a small way to have a big impact. Your regular support empowers our ministry to respond to urgent needs and fulfill our long-term projects across the world.

At Cross Catholic, we meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised. In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.
Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2021, the close of our ministry’s new 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.
