Due to the measures taken to fight the pandemic, many Swiss people are in a difficult financial situation. Swiss companies are struggling to survive and some have launched appeals for domestic donations.

This has an impact on the receipt of donations by ministries that are active in development cooperation, such as Mission 21.

Mission 21 will do everything in its power to continue the important development cooperation with its partner organizations, says Katharina Gfeller, Head of International Relations at Mission 21, and emphasizes: "We are generally already present in regions that are affected by other crises, whose emergency populations receive little or no support from the state.
