Advocacy for People on the Move
One hundred years ago, MCC was formed in faith to help people in crisis and dealing with displacement. Today, we are working hard to live up to this legacy in response to COVID-19. When crises like these occur, the needs of vulnerable and displaced families become even more pronounced, whether at home or around the world.
Thank the Canadian government for the recent UN vote
(français ci-dessous) Thank the Canadian government for their recent vote at the UN and call for substantial and meaningful actions for a just peace. In November 2019 – for the first time since 2005 – Canada voted in favour of a United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution in support of Palestinian self-determination. The resolution (74/69) condemns illegal settlements and the Israeli occupation.
Peacebuilding to Address Forced Migration
All over the world, people are on the move. Over 70.8 million people are currently forcibly displaced from their homes. In 2018 alone, there were 28 million new internal displacements across 148 countries and territories. Eighty percent of the world’s displaced remain in neighboring countries in the global south. They have no prospective of either going home or resettling in a third country.
