Jesuit Missions www.jesuitmissions.org.uk
Jesuit Missions is an organisation set up to provide support and funds for missionaries in Guyana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. The missionaries themselves are Jesuits, and their duty is to serve the communities in which they are based. This work includes education, feeding programmes, hospitals, orphanages, community centres and – in times of drought and famine – emergency aid.
As well as supporting the work of British Jesuits, Jesuit Missions assist those from other Provinces working in the developing world. We support missionaries and their work in Rwanda, Nepal, Bosnia, Philippines, Cambodia, India, Kenya and other developing nations.
Jesuit Missions also runs JM Volunteering, offering young people the opportunity to work on six-month placements with the Jesuits abroad.
