With gratitude, Dorcas looks back on the past years in her annual reports. Each annual report is published in May or June and provides comprehensive and transparent information about our activities, results and impact.
2021 Saw Dorcas grow in partnering for change for realising change. Our collective efforts reached and impacted more than 900,000 persons in 14 countries in Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. 42 Dorcas shops and 10,000 volunteers, over 81,000 individual supporters, 1,900 companies and 1,500 churches worked together with 372 Dorcas staff and many partner organisations.
The COVID-19 impact was felt in many public sectors, communities, and our lives. It became abundantly clear across the world: self-esteem and resilience are essential for maintaining hope and perspective in difficult times.
