We work to build global partnerships with organizations that have an established presence in their respective countries and communities and with whom we share an aligned mission and vision.
Our Crossroads teams are learning and serving experiences to visit and support our partner organizations as they work together to meet their goals. Previous trips and teams have included: Native American Relief work in Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota; Post-Katrina relief in Slidell, LA; IDEA ministries in Cancun, Mexico; Medical assistance in Africa, South America and the Caribbean.
- Marion Medical Mission – Works hand in hand with rural villagers in Malawi, Tanzania, and Zambia bringing safe drinking water to more than five million people. In partnership with each village, over 42,000 wells have been built creating sustainable sources of safe drinking water, since 1990. Wells are designed for easy repair by villagers without outside assistance, provide a lasting solution to the global water crisis. Cost of each well is $450 and 100% of donations go directly to specified water project, with no overhead costs deducted. View video here.
Crossroads, through Gracious Gifts, and other small groups, pool funds to purchase these wells. To donate or learn more about Marion Medical Mission, click here.
