MCC was born 100 years ago as people came together to care for others in crisis. We could not have expected that in MCC’s centennial year, the world would be hit with a disaster of the magnitude of the coronavirus pandemic. Unlike the disaster in southern Russia (present-day Ukraine) 100 years ago, which sparked the beginnings of MCC, COVID-19 affects all of us everywhere – all the places where MCC works, all the communities that support that work.
Right now, more people are displaced from their homes than ever before in our history, because of conflict, drought and other disasters. Compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial and other disparities unmasked by the crisis, this requires bold action.
This year we invite your participation in New Hope in the Name of Christ, a special fundraising effort to continue this ministry. We believe this is a time to recommit ourselves to caring for neighbors around the world, including working for peace and justice in the face of racism and other injustices. Now, more than ever, is the time for New Hope.
We are asking for increased gifts of all sizes, from all donors.
Your donation will be invested in:
- Life-saving water, sanitation and hygiene, health and food programs: Provide soap, handwashing stations, personal protective equipment and emergency food in places like Malawi, Colombia and Lebanon
- Long-term ministry: Strengthen MCC’s ongoing work to provide relief, development and peace, and support a vision of communities in right relationship with God, one another, and creation worldwide, including here in the U.S.
- Essential services for displaced and other vulnerable people: Touch the lives of people uprooted by conflict, disaster and inequality. Help build peace and bring new opportunities to families and communities in places like Syria, Ecuador, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the U.S.
- Endowment: Invest in changing lives and bringing relief and hope for future generations.
Your gift will help meet the current and urgent needs that our world is facing.
You can also share a message of love and compassion for generations to come through a legacy gift.
Please join us in planting New Hope.
