All over the world people suffer from not having access to clean water. In developing nations, precious time is spent gathering water from potentially contaminated sources. Villagers then use this unclean water for bathing, cleaning, and drinking – risking illness or even death.
Cross Catholic Outreach is committed to supplying safe water to these impoverished communities. Our generous partners have saved countless lives through their commitment to our ministry’s clean water and sanitation projects around the world.
Join our campaign to provide clean water to poor families everywhere.
The poorest communities lack access to clean water. Families, especially women and children, may walk for hours in one direction just to gather water from a contaminated source or wash clothes in a muddy stream.
An added benefit of water projects is the valuable time that beneficiaries will gain. Instead of spending hours finding and transporting water, children can attend school, and parents can earn an income.
Your help is essential to fund critically-needed water programs in developing countries. By supporting clean water programs, you can quench thirst and give life to suffering families. Woman and children will no longer need to fetch potentially contaminated drinking water or wash clothes in a dirty stream. They will have time to work and attend school, and their families will have ample water for drinking, bathing, cooking and cleaning. With a gift to our clean water programs, you can save and fundamentally transform lives.
Use it for reflections and notes to grow in your spiritual life. You’ll also receive a prayer request form to mail back so that we can pray for your needs. In effect, this creates a spiritual bridge to connect you to our sisters and brothers in Christ in the developing world!
Cross Mission Partners also receive a semiannual Mission Update with news, insights and information about the good work and accomplishments made possible by your support.
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.
