Food in Dominican Republic

Fundación Hospital El Buen Samaritano

Donate to help transform lives


Some of the poorest families in the Dominican Republic live in bateyes — communities built on sugarcane plantations to house workers.

Many of these workers are Haitian immigrants who earn miniscule wages in exchange for backbreaking labor. Often, their families eat only one meal a day and snack on sugarcane to satiate their nagging hunger. Cross Catholic Outreach has a solution: nutrient-rich Vitafood meals. But we need your support to help these meals reach hungry families!

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 5.97%
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.
