How Cross International is making an impact
Cross International works in partnership with Christian churches and ministries around the world that are doing whatever they can to put food on the tables of the poor. We provide nutritious school lunches for children who aren’t eating enough at home, food staples for the indigent elderly, emergency support for severely malnourished babies and young children in remote rural villages, and income-generating opportunities for those who are trying to provide for their families. Often, the food is distributed in the context of broader poverty-relief programs, thus increasing those programs’ effectiveness and greatly benefiting the hungry. In addition, we are able to rush supplies of food and medical aid to disaster-stricken regions where time is critical.
