Javier López-Frías, Toni Miró, Patricia Ruiz, Ana Zornoza and Luisa Moreno, are the five young people who this year put their faces to the campaign of the World Mission Day - DOMUND.

All of them have shared, from different congregations or associations, the missionary experience and it is their testimonies that, in this edition, express the personal richness that the mission has meant for them in different locations in South America and Africa.

A testimonial campaign, as the National Director of OMP, José María Calderón, points out: "If we want to tell what we have seen and heard... what better than young people to help us do it? Many young people have had the good fortune to share some time with the missionaries and want to share with us what they have experienced and what they have felt".

II Solidarity Run and Get to Know the Domund

This campaign also joins the second edition of the solidarity race organized by the Pontifical Mission Societies. Run for the Domund. A non-competitive race, adapted to all audiences and, for now, virtual 100% that aims to raise awareness of the work of more than 10,000 Spanish missionaries as well as to allow the solidarity and economic collaboration of all registered participants.
