Our association with Bishop Johannes Jobst dates back to 1975. Bishop Jobst is a German national who lived and worked in Australia for more than 40 years. His diocese was in Broome, Western Australia.

In this vast country Bishop Jobst put a great deal of effort into improving the living conditions of the Aboriginals.

We helped him in his work, by building a school, for example, to encourage the people to settle in one place and help them adapt to Western society.

Amongst other things, we provided the necessary means for a mobile home for a nurse who is thus able to travel to outlying villages. We also contributed funds to cover the urgently needed repairs to the mission aeroplane.

A total of EUR 0.2 Mio. has been donated for this project.
