individual visits abroad

namibiaIn the international meetings, ambassadors from different countries meet and become friends for life. After these international events, some ambassadors have visited their brothers and sisters abroad: to experience the country and the culture, or to work as a volunteer in projects of the Brothers CMM or WWB projects.

  • In August 2015, Lawrence Ndonga, ambassador in Kenya, visited his fellow-ambassadors in Namibia. Meeting people from several other missions, they introduced themselves as “Ambassadors of Worldwide Brotherhood founded by Brothers CMM”.
