Mission Without Borders
"Supporting those in desperate need"

Who we are

about us 2

We are a Christian organisation serving children, families and elderly people suffering poverty. Through practical and spiritual support we give hope by meeting urgent needs and building self-sufficient communities.


Called to Mission

We do this work because we believe we have been called by God to help the poor and needy. Our work is currently focussed on six Eastern European countries: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Moldova, Romania and Ukraine. We work with thousands of children and families across the region working through local churches, volunteers and our own specialist staff.

We started out smuggling Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. For over 50 years we have strengthened the poor and brought hope to the marginalised.

A single, torn-out Bible page was all a pastor in the USSR had to preach from for seventeen years. Showing this to Mission Without Borders' founders, he challenged them to "put Bibles into Eastern Europeans' empty hands to reach our own people."  And that's exactly what they did.

From 1960, called Underground Evangelism, we smuggled Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. Later, renamed Aid to the Persecuted, we also brought material support to Christians oppressed - and persecuted - under the Soviet Union's atheist, communist regime.

With the collapse of the Iron Curtain, and the disintegration of Cold War barriers, Mission Without Borders (MWB) was born. Our remit was to bring spiritual, emotional, educational and material aid to all those in need, regardless of their belief.
