What your support achieves – throughout the world


Support people in need

With your donation you support people in need. For example Christopher Mwakiteleko and his older siblings. Last year, a landslide occurred in southern Tanzania. In the middle of the night, the debris swept away part of his family's house and buried his parents. Christopher and his siblings were orphaned in one fell swoop. Orphans are particularly vulnerable in Tanzanian society. Support our work for orphans and make it possible that orphans like Christopher can continue to go to school and that houses can be rebuilt.
