MMS Stand With Hajipur Communities

For thousands of years, people in India considered to be in the lowest class in the caste system in India have suffered discrimination, persecution, poverty and many other forms of injustices.

Praying for Peace

MMS in Frankfurt, together with many other Christians, gathered in the Cathedral and remembered the implications of war on people, animals and creation. Together we prayed for peace and integrity of creation. Every year people design a logo for these peace candles. Then the beautifully decorated candles are presented in an ecumenical opening prayer service. The service takes place on September 1st, the Antiwar day in Germany, which marks the beginning of World War II.

Empowering Women in Ghana

In Ghana, West Africa Medical Mission Sisters chose the empowerment of women from the Millennium Development goals (MDGs) to work on. The sisters wanted to increase the skills of local women with skills to enable them to have income generating projects. Sister Colette Beru invited a group of women to share their ideas and dreams of what they would like to learn. The women asked for talks about family life and to learn how to make soap, pomade, powder, pastries and other items for home use.
