In 2018, 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 more than $78 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.
