How Cross International is Making an Impact
For the world’s poor, even simple illnesses like influenza can become life-threatening when left untreated. Unable to afford basic care, poor families often suffer from medical problems routinely and easily treated in countries like the United States. That’s why Cross International partners with Christian-based medical clinics and hospitals serving the poor in the name of Jesus in developing countries. By providing cash grants and shipping medicines and medical supplies, we can minister to the physical needs of the poor and demonstrate God’s love in a practical way.
