Families in need

Many people no longer have a job. The harvest was quite good, but food prices have risen sharply due to the corona pandemic. Nancy Ireri takes care of persons with disabilities. She telephones the families and brings food packages with rice and cornmeal. ½ ton of food was distributed.

In the meantime all supplies have been used up and distributed. We need your support for further food donations!

1000 Schools

At the kick-off event in the Festspielhaus Füssen, our visitors Peter Syanda and Moses Muchiri met the German Minister of Development Gerd Müller. They hope to get support for the Special School and the Sheltered Workshops through the program 1000 schools.

The current problem: Coli bacteria in the drinking water of the school.

The engineers get involved!


For three weeks, Matthias and Nadine, both members of Engineers without Borders (IoG) worked in Munyu.

Their aim is to improve the water and wastewater supply in the Sheltered Workshops.

During their visit, the public water supply was not working at all.

There is still a lot of work to be done!

Plaiting braids – Weltladen Weißenhorn and OASA

At the big children's party in Weißenhorn at the end of September, the Weltladen Weissenhorn and the Munyu Verein have been working together for the second time:

  • A lady from Weißenhorn with Cameroon roots braided children`s hair and made a lot of girls happy.
  • The parents could find information about current projects in Munyu.
  • The visitors bought jewelry, aprons and bags. All the items had been produced in the Maria Magdalena Sheltered Workshops. Young people with disabilities are happy that they have a good job in the arts and crafts department.

The income goes directly to the arts and crafts workshop.
