Crossroads Welcomes CIDA Review

BURLINGTON, ON, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Since 1982, Crossroads Christian Communications, through the generous support of tens of thousands of Canadian partners, has met the needs of hurting people all over the world.  In this 30 year period Crossroads has provided over $35,000,000 in relief and development aid to more than 41 countries.  During the last 10 years, Crossroads has been an effective Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) partner of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). CIDA has contributed $2,664,000 during this time.

Crossroads is not anti-gay.  At the heart of the Crossroads organization is a desire to love people unconditionally and to serve them selflessly.   Crossroads believes that God, as the Creator of the human race, outlines in the Bible ways for us to live in order to experience the most fulfilling life possible, and that God's blueprint encourages sexuality within a marriage. This same blueprint instructs loving others, just like God does, with an infinite value for every human being regardless of differences that include gender, race, religion, and sexuality, and to endeavor in every way, to ensure that people are treated with love, compassion and respect.  In this way, people can show love and respect to each other even when they disagree.

The Ugandan government is currently considering legislation with respect to homosexual activity. Crossroads provides aid based solely on human need and does not discriminate, nor does Crossroads attempt to influence or lobby foreign governments or policies. Having said that, Crossroads supports the Canadian government's position that strongly opposes the criminalization of homosexuality and violence on the basis of sexual orientation.

Crossroads appreciated the inquiry from a Canadian Press reporter who brought to the organization's attention an archival link on the website that was to have been removed some time ago.

Crossroads' purpose and approach to its relief and development initiatives is to provide humanitarian aid and assistance to people affected by disaster, famine, poverty and war while facilitating effective long-term development programs in their communities. Crossroads with its supporters first began development work in Northern Uganda in 2006 and to date has provided over $3,200,000 in aid.   In 2011, Crossroads qualified for a fund matching program, totaling $499,813 through CIDA to multiply their humanitarian work. This project was for the installation and refurbishment of wells for clean water, the installation of latrines for sanitation, and training to sustain these efforts. Crossroads has a proven track record for a high standard of delivery on defined goals and objectives set out in agreements with CIDA, which are strictly for humanitarian relief and development.  Crossroads welcomes the review by CIDA as referenced by Minister Julian Fantino so that funding continues for the families in such desperate need of clean drinking water and sanitation.
