A calling from the heart
Fraternity Without Borders was founded after a calling from the heart. Wagner Moura, the founder, and president of FWB, was still a child when he found himself crying over the hunger in the world. That pain accompanied him through his youth and awakened in him the desire of helping those in need. As an adult, he began volunteering in unprivileged areas in his city. However, that was not enough for him, Wagner wanted to do more for humanity, so he decided to go to Africa.
At first, he decided to help Mozambique since it is a Portuguese-speaking country, located in the poorest area of the world, the Sub-Saharan Africa, a region where one million people suffer from hunger and six hundred thousand are orphans. There, he started the Shelter Mozambique project, providing a home for numerous children.
From those early days until today, a series of fortunate events have been leaving the marks of fraternity and love in Africa, helping us build a better world.
