Mission in Action
The Mission Fund – Doing Small Things With Great Love has awarded over $18 million dollars over the past 14 years to the poorest among us in more than 60 countries.
Mission Fund grants have created shelters for the poor, soup kitchens to feed the hungry and employment training for orphans and abandoned children. Mission Fund grants also help hospitals in poor countries to obtain medical equipment, and provides medicine, medical services, and food for the sick and hungry.
Here are a few beautiful stories from some of our grant recipients.
Association Pope John 23rd (APJ23) has been working in Zambia since 1986, providing assistance to the most vulnerable. APJ23 runs well established programs in the fields of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs), disability, nutrition and social enterprise.
The Missionary of Charity Sisters give wholehearted and free service to the poorest of the poor. In February 2021, Mission Fund grants were given to the Missionaries of Charity in Chad ($20,000) and in Syria ($60,000) for the education of village children, and food and medicine for the sick.
The Bishop of the Diocese of Punto Fijo, Venezuela, requested financial support of $15,600 for a period of three months to purchase food for the Mother Teresa Soup Kitchen, the parish meal programs and for the House of Mercy.
