Projects in Brazil

In Brasil, the Missionary Movement “Jesus in thy Neighbour” has 33 homes in the following states: Parana, Minas Gerais, Tocantinopolis, Maranhão, Piuaí, Paraíba, Pernambuco and Manaus. In these homes, the children are receiving a holistic education, where children under ten years of age spend most of the day at school, and are also given food on a daily basis. Whilst the children are receiving the much needed education, their parents will be having the opportunity to go to work.

The 12 years that Dun Gorg spent working in the slums and impoverished areas of Brazil spurred him on to launching the Missionary Movement – “Jesus in thy neighbour”. With this in mind, this NGO’s initial philanthropic efforts were based in Brazil. To date, the movement has over 18,000 children under its case in Brazil alone, spread over various states within the country.
