Mission 21

Mission 21 is engaged in 20 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America in the context of sustainable development cooperation and humanitarian aid for peacebuilding, education, health, food sovereignty and income generation. In this way, we contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This worldwide commitment is combined with programs for intercultural exchange and interreligious cooperation as well as the promotion of understanding for global interrelationships.

What your support does worldwide

DR Congo

Food for children

In Kwango Province, many families cannot afford even one meal a day. Children are particularly affected: Currently, almost 40 percent of young children are severely malnourished. In view of this emergency, the women's federation of our partner church became active: In the "Centre de Malnutrition," volunteers care for about 120 malnourished children and their mothers twice a week. In addition to meals of soy, cassava, vegetables and proteins, the women and children also receive medical examinations and medication.

The center could be built, among other things, thanks to the contributions of our donors. But the need is greater than the supply - please join us in supporting the people of Kwango!
