Food in Brazil

Populorum Progressio Foundation – Cooking Fuel for Families

Donate to help transform lives


The simple task of cooking is a daily obstacle for impoverished families in Brazil. They can’t afford butane gas to light their stoves, and burning firewood leaves unhealthy smoke in their homes while contributing to deforestation.

Your gift will enable a Catholic ministry to provide 25 families with biodigesters, which turn animal waste into cooking fuel. Donate today to protect important forests and help families begin cooking safely.

Our Global Work

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 and ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

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 5.82%
More than 94 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2022

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures 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.
