Women break the silence

Violence against women is a taboo in Iraq. Now the women are responding by paintings at one of Mission East's civic centers in Sinjar, Iraq.

“In our culture, women are expected to remain silent when it comes to violence, whether the violence is domestic violence, rape or assault by a stranger. But silence cannot heal wounds or solve the problem."

Mission East strengthens people under pressure in Myanmar

An agricultural project has taught Mr. Sauma to grow a variety of crops so that his children can eat fruits and vegetables all year round. Today he is involved in leading the village's agricultural projects and is expanding his own farm with breeding of chickens, pigs and fish.

Myanmar is in deep crisis. The military regime has cracked down hard on any resistance since took power and ousted the democratically elected government 1 February 2021.

Families lack food and live in extreme poverty

The war in Syria affects the entire population. The worst situation is for those who have lost their jobs due to fleeing their home, land or business. They have no income and no money – and therefore the food is scarce.

Uncle Mohamad from the Aleppo hinterland used to be able to support his family. In the 1970s, he worked as a farmer and supported his wife and seven children. He was completely dependent on his agriculture and the products he cultivated, sold and lived on.

This is how we help the people of Syria

After 10 years of war, the country needs emergency aid and development more than ever. Mission East distributes emergency aid and helps affected families get back on their feet.
