MCC is responding to Christ’s call to serve the poor. In a world where the number of marginalized, displaced and threatened people seems to be ever increasing, MCC Legacy Trust is helping resource Mennonite Central Committee as it responds to basic human needs and works for peace and justice.
Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine,
you did for me.Matthew 25:40
There are currently over 25.9 million refugees in the world, over half of whom are children. They come from Syria, Afghanistan, and South Sudan but there are also millions fleeing from the Congo, Myanmar and many others. Caring for refugees has been at the heart of MCC’s work since it started in 1920, responding to the needs of the hungry and displaced in the Ukraine as a result of the Russian Revolution.
For 100 years, the stories have been passed down through the generations that came before us. But there is still more to be done. Water security for Bolivia, peace building in Burkina Faso, women’s health in Tanzania, food security in Laos, education in Ukraine.
With the help of hundreds of partners in over 50 countries, and thousands of donors and volunteers, MCC is sharing God’s love and compassion in areas forgotten by the rest of the world and with those in greatest need.
MCC Legacy Trust is helping to ensure Mennonite Central Committee is resourced to respond to the world in need, a world longing to be in right relationship with God, one another and creation.
