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.
Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.
Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for clean water programs incurred through June 30, 2020, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund general clean water programs, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
