Emergency Support in Ethiopia

Daughters of Charity

Donate to help transform lives


Malnutrition and hopelessness are spreading among impoverished families in the Tigray region of Ethiopia following a protracted and brutal civil war. Food is hard to find and what supplies are available have soared in price, causing the most acute food insecurity since a famine in 2011.

Without a way to earn an income, families are going without food and begging on the streets. Fortunately, there is a solution. A recent cease-fire agreement gives the Daughters of Charity the opportunity to assist families with a carefully crafted emergency response plan. Your gift will enable them to provide food deliveries, supplemental nutrition for babies, sanitation supplies, emotional support, and training and capital to start small businesses.

Financial Accountability

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.

Fundraising & Administrative Expenses 5.97%
More than 94 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2023

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2024, 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.
