Learn about Cross International’s local ministry partner in Guatemala that is crucial to the success of medical aid programs.
Would you pray for those facing disease and illness in areas around the world where barriers to healthcare are often insurmountable without the help of others?
We believe medical aid for those in need should not only provide treatment, but also include disease prevention and health education. Treatment rightly focuses on existing conditions needing compassionate intervention. But sustained good health requires battling preventable diseases before they occur.
Today, 1-1.5 million Guatemalan children and their family members live in homes made of dirt floors, cornstalks, mud, sticks, and any other materials they can find. We pray you’ll support Cross International’s Thriving Kids initiative as we build homes for families.
The country of Nicaragua has been a priority for Cross International since 2006, when we expanded our reach into Central and South America. A stunningly beautiful country, Nicaragua is also a place of tremendous need.
