WE HEALED THE SICK AND MENDED BROKEN HEARTS

In 2016, Cross International met the medical needs of the poor in nine countries. Our efforts focused on providing lifesaving medications and supplies typically unavailable to the very poor. 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 God’s beautiful gift of life is a blessing worth cherishing and protecting.

For example, we shipped nearly $62.9 million in medical supplies and medicines to five different countries. And in Afghanistan , our donors’ generous gifts supported a Christian-run hospital that provided quality medical care for poor mothers and newborns — including children requiring emergency attention — in the country’s first neonatal intensive care unit.

LIFESAVING MEDICAL CARE FOR AFGHAN MOTHERS AND BABIES – PROJECT 0621 – AFGHANISTAN

In Afghanistan, Cross International continued its long-time support of the neonatal unit in a hospital run by dedicated Christians. This unit is the first of its kind in Afghanistan, and provides free care to poor mothers and their babies. In a war-torn country, this is often the most love and compassion these families have ever received from strangers, and it makes all the difference in their deepest hour of need.
