This is us
wortundtat is a promise to the poorest of the poor – currently over 250,000 in five countries. We help with partners that are native to these countries, with deeds that alleviate poverty, with promises of the Bible, which may give people hope beyond today. wortundtat creates self-help facilities, is happy about quick successes and has – if required – a lot of stamina and helps, where other help is hardly provided.
wortundtat has been helping in five countries on three continents for 42 years. You too can help.
