Growing our community of hope

By Andrea Vogt | International Director Operation Mercy

Dear friends of Operation Mercy, 

 

one of the pages in our newly published annual report starts like this: 

"Operation Mercy is a community of hope. We are a community that is diverse in backgrounds, personal stories, skills, and vocations. We are a community working in 10 countries, from many different nations. Our community represents men and women, young and old, many languages, ethnicities, and faith backgrounds. Even though we are different, we are united in wanting to see people raised up, in and through community, because we share hope which enables us to look beyond the pain and suffering that we encounter every day." 

... and it is absolutely true! 

During the first six months of 2022 we have been looking out to continue to grow our community. I strength and resilience as we continue to work in difficult, challenging places - but also by adding friends and new partners to our community. 

In April I was able to spend a week in Niger, a country ranking at the bottom of the human development indix in many areas, dry, hot, forgotten by many. But during this week i met people of hope, who have dreams for their own communities, people who like us want to see restoration and new life in places of barrenness. 

The workshop had not only men and women from Niger but also Mali, Chad, Senegal and Mauretania - people full of passion for their own communities. 

Talks have started with several of them to see where new partnerships can be build, how lessons we have learned in other fragile hard places can be applied here, what these communities know that can be of value elsewhere in our network. it is an exciting journey - and we hope to be able to share more news about those places with you in the future! 

At the same time we continue to build our community of hope bringers, like yourself. We connect to our members during our annual meeting and were able to present our annual report 66 pages of stories and news from our projects. Check out the link below and have a look!! 

 A special thanks goes as every year to our many international and national volunteers - who put in an astonishing 60 734 hours of professional work in 2022. This means that through our volunteer, self financed staff we can add 2$ to every 4$ you donate! 

These 6$ are enough to touch a life and a person in need through our work. 

Thanks for being part of our community of hope bringers! 

 

Yours Andrea
