Responding in times of urgent need
MCC responds to the needs of communities facing disasters or war, often launching projects that continue over months or even years. While MCC provides funds, MCC workers and partners often comment on the faith, hope and courage of communities themselves to rebuild, despite the challenges. In addition to disaster or emergency response, MCC also strives to meet long-term needs and make communities stronger. Click on the campaigns to the right to learn more.
