By Aaron Humes: In the wake of Hurricane Earl, Mark Mosely, Senior Director of Cross International and his team are headed to Belize today, Sunday, to deliver disaster relief in the form of food and medicine.
Mosely and Cross International will be distributing 15 pallets of food for 150,000 meals as well as medical mission packs to treat 5000 people.
Cross International locates needy church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations serving the poor and distributes material aid through their existing programs.
“We consider it a privilege to support the people of Belize who are fighting bravely to live through the effects of Hurricane Earl,” Mosely said. “We are looking forward to bringing in these vital supplies to demonstrate our support and compassion.”
Cross International says that its 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.
