Hands of Care and Hope

Donate to help transform lives


In Nairobi’s Huruma slum, orphaned and vulnerable children are growing up on the streets or are living in crumbling tin shacks. They rummage through the city’s sprawling garbage dump for food and often fall into crime, addiction and prostitution out of sheer desperation.

These young people need renewal — and today, you can provide the life-changing gift of hope! Your donation to Hands of Care and Hope will rehabilitate at-risk children and youth by providing a powerful combination of education, counseling, faith formation and family support.

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.
