Comic - A Century of Silent Helpers

As part of our partnership with Cordaid, we are producing a comic about the history of Cordaid within the context of the rise of international development aid in the 20th century.

In 50 pages, the comic tells the story of silent helpers in different periods in history. Their stories show that helping is something not bound to time and place, but bound to our humanity. The comic shows the past, present and future of helping. In each period, we see that helping is about making connections. These connections give meaning to our own life, and that of others.

The comic is written by CM editor Tjeerd Royaards, and is drawn by Tom Humberstone; it will be published online chapter by chapter in the coming months.
