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


As you can see from the photos here, Alicia and Leidy were in terrible condition when they were rescued and admitted to an emergency nutrition rescue center supported by Cross Catholic Outreach in Guatemala.

The girls are only 3- and 4-years-old in the picture. Leidy weighed 13 pounds and Alicia, just 14 pounds. They were so severely malnourished that they were too weak even to cry. Their skin was paper thin. Their organs were on the verge of shutting down.  
Many starving children like Alicia and Leidy have been orphaned or abandoned. In other cases, their parents are so poor they can’t afford to buy milk or proper food for their little ones. Alicia and Leidy were so close to death when they were rescued that it’s really a miracle that they survived. But with compassion, love, expert care and non-stop prayers – and the support of caring Catholic supporters just like you – the girls were saved!
Today, eight years later, they are thriving. They’re now in third grade and are among the best students at the Hope of Life orphanage/school connected to the rescue center we support.
