MCC celebrates 100 years in 2020!

Since 1920, MCC has worked with the church, partner organizations and supporters. We do this by sharing God’s love and compassion by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. We started by helping families affected by war and famine in southern Russia (present-day Ukraine). We now work in more than 50 countries around the world.

Share your story guidelines

Thanks for your interest in sharing your MCC story!  We hope this is a positive platform for self-expression, creativity and storytelling. To keep this a respectful and safe place for everyone, consider these guidelines before you submit a story:


Use this platform to uplift, rather than tear down.

Our Faith. Our Future.

For some, peace is a wish. For MCC, peace is a call to action.

For 100 years, we’ve responded to basic needs and worked for peace and justice. We started in 1920, gathering food, clothing and money to thousands of families affected by war and famine in southern Russia (present-day Ukraine). At the same time, we helped thousands more immigrate to Canada. MCC has continued this work all over the world ever since.
But we’re needed now more than ever before.
