The Khortitsa Oak tree in Ukraine is said to be nearly 1000 years old. For many whose parents and grandparents were supported by MCC in Ukraine in the 1920s, the tree is a symbol of the new life they were given in Canada.
In celebration of 100 years of relief, development and peace in the name of Christ, an oak tree, born from an acorn of the legendary Khortitsa Oak in Ukraine, will be planted at MCC Ontario’s Kitchener office.
