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

Orphans

WE RESCUED ORPHANS AND GAVE THEM HOPE

Cross International works throughout the developing world to meet the basic needs of orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children. Our goal is to cultivate young hearts and minds for the Lord, to bring spiritual peace to the poor and to unleash the potential of boys and girls to achieve a more prosperous future. We make this outreach a priority because the sooner vulnerable children are reached, the more likely they will escape the self-destructive behaviors created by their early childhood traumas. Love overcomes fear and opens the door to hope and opportunity.

In 2016, we provided grants for 10 projects to support orphans and vulnerable children around the world (these numbers exclude projects that serve orphans but are categorized as education, etc.). A portion of that funding went toward Canaan Orphanage in Haiti, where children from destitute families were provided with a nurturing home environment and top-notch education. Funds also supported HIV/AIDS-infected and -affected children at the Ruimveldt Children’s Home and Care Center in Georgetown, Guyana.

Canaan Orphanage

CANAAN ORPHANAGE – PROJECT 0120 – HAITI

In 2016, Cross International continued its long-term partnership with Canaan Orphanage by providing support for its holistic ministry to Haiti’s orphans and vulnerable children. Canaan is committed to raising each child with the love of Christ, equipping all of the children with a quality Christian education and knowledge and love of the Lord. Canaan is more than an orphanage, as its ministries include a Christian school, a medical clinic that is open to the community and an onsite church.
