Cooperation for Development Service
“In order to champion the hospitaller mission in the poorest countries, the Congregation has set up a Development Aid Service, which fosters solidarity and social reform while seeking out human resources and securing funding” (XX General Chapter no. 31).
Medical projects in developing countries are supported financially by the Congregation, public and private sources of funding and private donations.
The Casa General de Roma centre manages and oversees this aid service and is supported in this task by the Benedict Menni Foundation, the NGO of the Congregation.
It provides technical support in preparing, presenting and managing development aid projects, focusing particularly on the most underprivileged countries and individuals.
