Ethiopia is one of the countries hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Women there who contract HIV often face harsh stigmatization — especially those who are employed in prostitution.
Local Catholic leaders want to offer an empowerment program to draw these vulnerable women away from this dehumanizing work and place them on a path toward a better life. The outreach will provide basic business training to help these women pursue a healthier career, start-up business capital, mentorship and HIV de-stigmatization. Help us give these women a second chance!
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.
Become a Cross Mission Partner today and experience the joy of changing lives every month through your gift.
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.
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, 2023, 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.
