Water in Zambia

Sisters of Mercy of St. Charles Borromeo WASH

Donate to help transform lives


Rural families in Zambia are often forced to collect water from contaminated sources, so they know each cup they drink could make them sick.

While they understand this risk, they have no other choice. The water sources accessible to them are dirty rivers or hand-dug pits, which often are contaminated with bacteria, parasites and mosquito larvae. Fortunately, Catholic sisters who operate a rural health center have a plan to bring clean water to more than 4,338 villagers. With your support, the sisters will be able to install 10 water wells, bringing safe, refreshing water to local 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 5.82%
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.
