1. Nicaragua: Water and better health at rural schools
Join MCC to provide clean water at rural schools in the Bluefields area of Nicaragua where students don’t have a safe water supply. Your gift will help construct new wells at five schools and repair existing water systems at three more schools. With these improvements, students will have the water they need to drink and wash their hands. The wells will also benefit families who live near the schools, improving the health of whole communities!
The average cost of one complete well is $1,400.
$175 provides a carbon water filter for one school.
Please designate your MCC donation to Nicaragua/water.
2. Democratic Republic of the Congo: Share with families who are making a new start
You can help churches in the Democratic Republic of the Congo reach out and share God’s love with families who are new in their communities. These families had to flee their hometowns because of violence, and now they need to make a new start. With your donation, the churches can purchase items that school children need and can help families learn to raise pigs!
$9 provides a school uniform and shoes for one child.
$60 provides one sow for a family.
Please designate your MCC donation to DR Congo/emergency assistance.
3. Cambodia: Gardens, chickens and fishponds
Your gift will help families in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia, boost their nutrition and incomes. Each family receives training and supplies so they can start a household garden and raise chickens and fish. With your support, parents can grow healthy food at home and earn money for expenses like school fees and medical care for their children. These opportunities also prevent family members from needing to migrate to find work.
$100 provides multiple items for a family: vegetable seeds, garden tools, fish fingerlings to stock a new pond, materials to build a chicken shelter and more.
Please designate your MCC donation to Cambodia/food.
4. Lebanon: Summer activities for war-affected children
You can help provide fun summer activities for Syrian children who had to leave their country because of war. The money you raise will support summer day camps that bring together children from refugee families and their neighbors in Lebanon. These camps help bring healing and create opportunities to form friendships.
$40 covers the cost for one child to attend day camp for one week.
Please designate your MCC donation to Syria/relief to support these summer camps.

5. Jordan: Learning opportunities for children who are deaf and blind
You can share God’s love with children living and learning at a unique school in Salt, Jordan, for students who are both deaf and blind. Through lessons with specially trained teachers, the children learn how to communicate through sign language, read braille, do fun exercises and crafts, take care of themselves and much more. Their family members also learn how to best support and care for them.
$30 (or any amount) helps to cover costs of classroom materials and teacher training for the deafblind program in Jordan.
Please designate your MCC donation to Jordan/education.
