The work to save lives continues in Haiti. This month marks the 4-month anniversary since Hurricane Matthew tore through Haiti.

Since that day, Cross International has been providing life-saving assistance to the country. This includes food, medicine and vital humanitarian services.

Last week, Cross International, one of the leading Christian relief organizations, shipped a 40-foot container packed with 35 pallets of food from Miami to Haiti. This container will provide 272,160 life-saving and nutritional meals.

The organization invited the media to watch the pallets being placed into the container. They noted that this shipment was only a small part of the aid Cross International has been providing to Haiti following the devastation of Hurricane Matthew.

Faith Based Events

“Cross International has made an ongoing commitment to uplifting the poorest of the poor including our brothers and sisters affected by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti,” said Jim Cavnar, President, Cross International.

Cross International’s priority is to help “the poorest of the poor.”  Efforts reach those suffering extreme poverty in countries throughout the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Latin America. Projects include relief for earthquake, flood and tsunami victims, care and education for orphans and other vulnerable children, housing for the homeless, medicines and health care for the indigent, food for families suffering extreme malnutrition, and clean water for communities that have none, as well as micro-enterprise programs and other long-term development efforts to break the cycle of poverty.

In every case, the method of outreach is the same: Cross International locates needy church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations serving the poor and distributes material aid through their existing programs.
