Bred for the World - 50 years

“Brot für die Welt” (“Bread for the World”) is a programme of help instigated by the protestant churches in Germany. It was set up in Berlin in 1959 and since then has been the responsibility of the “Diakonische Werk”, the Social Service Agency of the Protestant Church in Germany (EKD). “Brot für die Welt” works jointly with local churches and partner organisations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe on over 1,000 projects, all of which are aimed at helping people to help themselves. The motto behind our work is “justice for the poor”. For the NGO´s anniversary Zeitenspiegel was assigned to feature 50 outstanding supporters. I got to visit 4 of them.
