The Corona pandemic is hitting our partner countries in Latin America hard. In Chile, Peru and Bolivia, the virus is still spreading significantly and, in addition to health consequences, the economic consequences are now also becoming clearly noticeable.

What this means for people's everyday lives and for the work of our partner organizations is reported by Simone Dollinger and Angel Román in their new Newsletter. The two live in Costa Rica, but as employees of Mission 21 they are in close contact with all partner organizations in Latin America. They tell very vividly about the necessary adjustments in our projects and about their own everyday life, which has also changed a lot in the past months.

Angel Román is a lecturer in theology and coordinator of research at the Universidad Bíblica Latinoamericana (UBL)Simone Dollinger coordinates the theological section of the Latin America Program In their newsletter, the two report on their work and everyday life in Costa Rica.

We thank both of them for the newsletter and wish you, dear readers, a stimulating read.
