We provide humanitarian aid and support to disadvantaged communities in developing countries around the globe. We have assisted more than 100,000 people across 27 nations and with your help we can have immediate impact with lasting benefits for the poor.

About Mission World Aid

We are a not-for- profit, non-denominational Christian organisation based in Adelaide, South Australia. We work in cooperation with other organisations to relieve poverty, starvation and disease. Mission World Aid was founded in 1992 by Jenny Hagger AM as a demonstration of Christ’s love and compassion for the poor and needy.

Helping with overseas aid

Material Aid 

We began in response to a request from Mozambique for desperately needed humanitarian aid, and grew to distribute 133 shipping containers packed with essential goods to needy communities around the world. The provisions enabled not only relief, but opportunity to set up schools and medical clinics where there were none.

Overseas Partnerships

We work with overseas partners to ensure that relief aid reaches those in need of assistance. We have a strict selection policy when choosing partners and we maintain personal relationships with these organisations, ensuring that all aid is being distributed appropriately.

Equipping & Training

In partnership with Clean Water 4 Life we equip village communities with the skills to drill their own clean water wells and construct related infrastructure and buildings. We empower people to develop a sustainable business by utilising these skills to assist nearby communities in need of drinking water and buildings.

We need your help

Mission World Aid is supported solely by volunteers. When you support this vital work all tax deductible donations will contribute to the overseas aid and development programmes.   Administration expenses are funded separately. All donations over $2.00 to our overseas aid gift fund are tax deductible.

Sustainable self-development

The village of Fa’arau in the Solomon Islands is an example where equipping local people with tools and skills to build wells and construct buildings has enabled them to help other villages as they were helped, multiplying what can be achieved with external aid alone.  

Humanitarian Aid

From schools in India to hospitals in the Congo.

Mission World Aid donors and volunteers support the distribution of humanitarian aid and development activities through many partner organisations around the world.

The Mission Shop

The Mission Shop, 15/208 Mt Barker Rd in Aldgate, South Australia is run by volunteers and sells quality second-hand goods.

Mission World Aid was inspired by the Bible verse, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me…Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
[Matthew 25:35-40]
