Delivering Food, Shelter, and Hope to the Poorest of the Poor.

Medicine

WE HEALED THE SICK AND MENDED BROKEN HEARTS

In 2016, Cross Catholic Outreach shipped over $273.8 million in medicines and supplies to the poorest of the poor. Our efforts focused on providing lifesaving medications and supplies typically unavailable to impoverished families. By funding free health clinics and by shipping key medicines to the poor in remote regions, we are able to reduce infant mortality, prevent or treat life-threatening diseases, and respond to accidents and injuries before lives are lost. We believe life is a priceless gift worth protecting, and we support the Catholic Church’s important mission to that end.

For example, in Ethiopia we provided staff salaries, medical supplies and medicines to St. Gabriel Health Center to provide prenatal and postnatal care for mothers and their babies. And in Bolivia, we funded staff salaries at the San Lucas Health Project to provide medical and dental care for poor families.

Impact Report
St. Gabriel Health Center

ST. GABRIEL HEALTH CENTER – PROJECT 1429 & 0922 – ETHIOPIA

Cross Catholic Outreach provided funding for staff salaries, medical supplies and medicines at St. Gabriel Health Clinic, which provided maternal and infant health care to destitute pregnant women and children who would otherwise go without care. Through this program, we were able to care for expectant mothers before, during and after the baby’s arrival. In 2016, our funds helped deliver 196 babies. By providing quality care, we were able to ensure a healthy start to life for precious Ethiopian infants!
