    Corona crisis: The virus affects us all

    In the current issue we report on the influence of the Corona crisis on the project work of Mission 21 and what measures are being taken. With our financial support, our partner churches make the often decisive difference: whether it is through intensive education and prevention work in the villages, the distribution of food, hygiene articles and other relief supplies, access to clean water, training of medical staff in the hospitals or in the home care of infected persons.
