How Cross International is making an impactIn the Bible, Jesus showed great care and concern for well-being of children. At Cross International, we believe that children have a vital role to play in God’s Kingdom. That’s why we partner with orphanages, Christian schools, feeding centers and churches in developing countries who are reaching out to vulnerable children by alleviating their hunger with good nutrition. When paired with education and spiritual support, healthy meals have the power to change the trajectory of a poor child’s life. You can help us fill empty stomachs and heal broken hearts in the name of Jesus today. To learn more about how you can get involved, click here.
