Alberta Grow Hope 2018

Alberta's Grow Hope for 2018 was a huge success! For a second year, Richard and Esther Goerzen offered 100 acres for the Southern Alberta Grow Hope project. After adding an additional project with a group of farmers in Northern Alberta we had over 200 Grow Hope acres, and all were sponsored! With the sale of the crop this winter that may be worth as much as $100,000 for food projects around the world. As well, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank match from the government can turn that $100,000 into as much as $400,000!

Thank you to everyone who supported Grow Hope!

Bake Sale and Henna Fundraiser

More than half a million Rohingya refugees have fled extreme violence in Myanmar in search of safety and freedom. In Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees are living in makeshift shelters in overpopulated camps with little access to safe drinking water, hygiene, sanitation and food.

Support MCC's response to this crisis by purchasing some delicious baked goods and enjoying some beautiful henna tattoos.

Learning tour inspires generosity

The Crystal Spring Hutterite Colony seems to live according to the adage, “one good deed deserves another.”

The colony of about 180 people near Ste. Agathe, Manitoba collectively donated 50 acres of land to MCC’s Grow Hope campaign last year. This year they’re donating even more after two members visited Ethiopia where MCC partners are addressing food security needs.

Seeking a just, peaceful future: Open letter on Syria

If one member suffers, all suffer together with it.

– 1 Corinthians 12:26

In February we were part of a Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) delegation to Syria, including Damascus, Homs, Hama and Aleppo. We witnessed the devastation of war and heard testimonies of faith from people who have been living in difficult circumstances now for seven long years.

“You have suffered with us and rejoiced with us,” one of our partners told us. Said another: “Your presence with us is a sign of hope that God is not far from us.”

MCC Québec- Marche pour la Paix 2018/In solidarity we walk 2018

Cette année, pour amasser des dons qui aideront à la reforestation en Haïti, nous proposons aux Églises de donner tout en se réunissant pour marcher ensemble dans un bois qui nous rappelle l’importance des arbres dans l’équilibre naturel!

The Quebec Mennonite Central Committee invites our Mennonite and MB Churches to participate in this fundraising project. Let’s gather, walk and donate together!
