What We Do
In 2 years of activity, Mission Bambini Switzerland has supported 14 aid projects in 10 countries worldwide. In 2016 there has been an increase in the number of projects supported with different purposes and in different areas.
It has been estimated that every year 1 million children are born with congenital heart disease all over the world. Around 80% are born in a poor country: half of them won’t survive beyond the first year due to lack of medical help and surgical facilities; the others will suffer serious growth problems and difficulties in their psychosomatic development. Through “Children’s Heart” Program Mission Bambini Switzerland supports humanitarian missions of medical volunteers or supports local hospitals in the following Countries: Brazil, Cambodia, Kenya, Romania, Zimbabwe.
In many countries, access to education is still a daily challenge for millions of children. Thanks to individual Long-Distance Sponsorships (each donor is linked to a single child), Mission Bambini Switzerland guarantees children the right to a good education every year, by means of covering schooling costs: entry fees, books and uniforms.
