Playing time: 
MCC Staffer, Kyle Rudge joins Darryl Loewen, Executive Director of MCC Manitoba, at River East Church in Winnipeg to engage in a Forced to Flee exercise with their church community. 


Forced to Flee is a simulation where people work together in “family units”, making difficult decisions to maintain their supply of food, money, and health while securing their future post-conflict.

Contact if you'd like to bring Forced to Flee to your church community.
