MASA – Origin and Development
Missionary Activities in South America (MASA) – this name dates back to the early seventies. During an evangelistic trip to Argentina and Brazil, Pastor Horst Borkowski was deeply moved by the children’s misery and by the inner and outer hardship of the Amerindians. He raised understanding and a willingness to help in Germany and other European countries.
Hunger is painful and makes you despair. This is the experience of many children in a slum near Mendoza. In a social centre on the outskirts of the city, some 250 of them receive a hot meal every day.
