Link between Fracarita International and WMH
Wereld Missie Hulp is an important partner of Fracarita International for several years. In recent history, Wereld Missie Hulp supported the water project of the Saint Cornelius Mental Health Centre Kasaka in Tanzania and the chicken project of the Gefersa Mental Health Rehabilitation Centre (GMHF) in Ethiopia. A lot of other centres also received (financial) support by WMH.
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the NGO presented the book ‘Dienstbaarheid in de praktijk’ (in English: ‘Complaisance in practice’) on a symposium in Leuven, Belgium, on Monday 21 March 2016. Fracarita International was present at this symposium. In this book, some experts analyze relevant themes: the history of the mission help, complaisance, poverty and spirituality.
