"Reaching people for Christ"

About us

Reaching people for Christ

We are a Christian Mission involved in helping people mainly in Eastern Europe.

Our History

Mission Without Borders was founded in 1960 in response to the material and spiritual needs of people living in poverty or suffering persecution in Communist Europe. Our work began when the Cold War was at its most intense. In Eastern Europe, a rigid political system had demanded strict loyalty, and those who dared to disagree suffered imprisonment and death. Literally millions of Christians were persecuted for their beliefs. Many paid with their lives and still do in various parts of the world.

The unregistered underground church was our mission field, reflected in our name at the time - Underground Evangelism, and later Aid to the Persecuted.

Our work today

Today, Mission Without Borders is an international Christian organisation dedicated to serving the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those suffering the effects of poverty or persecution. We have fundraising offices throughout the world, with our Field work coordinated and overseen from Romania.

MWB employs local staff enabling us to identify and address the most important local needs. Working this way we support the local economy and - after all, the local people know their own needs and culture best.

Through our staff in each of our field countries we are assisting thousands of abandoned children, single mothers, the elderly and poverty stricken families in Eastern Europe.
