"Reaching people for Christ: helping thousands of people out of poverty into a sustainable future"

Our Values


'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me. He has sent me to preach good news to the poor, to proclaim release to the prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to liberate the oppressed, and to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour.' Luke 4:18-19

  • We are a Christian organization. We do this work because we believe that we have been called to it.  
  • MWB employs only local staff, as they know local requirements and their own culture best. This enables us to identify and address the most important needs, while supporting the local economy.
  • We want to make a sustainable difference to the lives of those we help. We encourage self-help, provide training, help people to make changes because this is more sustainable and reduces dependency.
  • By involving those we serve, we recognize the dignity of the individual. 
  • We base all our work on relationships: at the community, regional and national level. Our presence in Eastern Europe for over 50 years means we enjoy exceptional co-operation with authorities and local churches in the countries where we work.
  • We support all who are in need, regardless of their belief, or lack of belief.  We offer everyone the opportunity to hear about the love of God in Jesus.
  • We partner with local churches, volunteers and supporters world-wide to assist thousands of abandoned children, single-parent families, elderly and young people, and families at risk. For this, we are dependent on our local network of thousands of volunteers spread across Eastern Europe.
  • We are motivated by the love of God.
