What we accomplished together
Building for a brighter future
"I work this land with my son...we’re building something new, for our children and the next generation." — Fausto Rodríguez Gómez, farmer, Llano Bajo, Chiapas, Mexico
In rural parts of Chiapas, Mexico’s southernmost state, economic inequality and land disputes have left many households facing food insecurity. MCC partner Institute of Intercultural Studies and Research provides training and resources to local farmers like Fausto Rodríguez Gómez. He has learned about subjects like natural fertilizers and insecticides and received materials like chicken coop netting.
people trained in improved agriculture and animal production methods
people received agricultural supplies, including seeds and tools
increase in the variety of food grown in kitchen gardens with support of a food security project in Bangladesh
food security and livelihoods projects in 34 countries
Responding in a time of crisis
“We gave to people whose homes were destroyed, people who lost their jobs, the elderly people with small pension benefits and people living with disabilities.” - Nadiya*, MCC program coordinator, Ukraine
Because of your generous and prayerful contributions, Ukrainians with no other support are getting their basic needs met. MCC sent comforters, canned meat and other relief items to city of Uman and nearby areas, and provided supplies, like this wood stove a recipient* is holding, to help people survive the cold winter with limited heating or electricity. (*Names shortened or omitted for security reasons.)
people received emergency food assistance globally
people in Ukraine have been supported through MCC’s 14 local partners
households received home repairs or reconstruction

Celebrating the gift of clean, nearby water
"I used to spend about three to five hours a day collecting water for household chores. Now, things changed because of MCC and ISARA’s support." —Malli Karji, Rugeising village, Odisha, India
Malli Karji collects spring water from a tap installed by MCC partner Institute of Social Action and Research Activities (ISARA) in Rugeising village. ISARA has been installing water harvesting systems in many villages to save women time on daily tasks and improve the health and hygiene of families.

Bringing new technology and opportunities
"Empowerment is giving voice, giving opportunities for people to choose what they want to do." — Caroline Pugeni, Mwenezi District, Zimbabwe
As a project coordinator for Score Against Poverty, an MCC partner in Mwenezi District, Zimbabwe, Caroline Pugeni not only provides opportunities for local women through clean energy technology and climate adaptation projects. She’s also showing other women that they, too, can be community leaders and make an impact in this rural region.

MCC at work in the U.S.
We invite you to explore just a few of the ways MCC has made a difference in communities across the U.S. in the past year.
We are so thankful for all who generously shared their time and resources to make these efforts possible.

Serving local communities
MCC Appalachia volunteers like Tim Snyder and Bob Jantzi lend their time and talents to repair homes in West Virginia and Kentucky.
Uniting through service
MCC Thrift shops make an impact across the U.S. In turn, volunteers like Alice Graber, 100, of South Dakota, can meet service-minded neighbors.
Global Center, local ties

Through MCC and Fresno Pacific University’s Multicultural Peace Collaborative, young adults took the trek an immigrant might take to central California.
