The Lord's Resistance Army rebel group has terrorized northern Uganda for more than 20 years. With support from MCC, Uganda's Concerned Parents Association is helping children, families and communities to recover from war.
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) works alongside local churches and communities in more than 50 countries, including Canada and the United States, to carry out disaster relief, sustainable community development and justice and peace-building work in the name of Christ. MCC also seeks to build bridges to connect people and ideas across cultural, political and economic divides. Together, MCC U.S. and MCC Canada administer this work.
MCC relies on the support of Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches to provide committed, energetic workers, financial support and prayer for this worldwide ministry. Read more about principles and practices guiding the mission of MCC.
MCC works alongside local congregations and communities to seek long-term solutions to poverty, hunger and poor health. This includes projects to ensure access to sufficient food, clean water and quality education and to respond to the HIV and AIDS pandemic.
Justice and peacebuilding
Justice and peacebuilding are at the heart of MCC’s mission. MCC supports local peacemakers, congregations and communities in efforts in healing, reconciliation and peace, especially in regions torn by war or armed conflict.
