LOVE EDUCATES AND MAKES EVERYTHING VALUABLE
As a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit organization we focus on helping make the world around us a better, happier place. By working with local volunteers we can have a big impact with small amounts of money, providing essentials to beneficiaries in need. MMP-MC has a very strong child protection policy .
Main ongoing programs include:
1/ Helping, since 2009, US wounded service men and women to return to civilian life (including resume building activities and finding a job as a stepping stone to a new life). This humble MMP-MC project called "Little Flower" is implemented in partnership with the Wounded Warriors Project, and is also helping about 12 brave heroes each year battle the long-term effects of combat stress and enable them to provide for their families .
2/ Helping, since 2001, Mother's Village orphanage in Medjugorje, which is a model for the whole world on how to care for orphaned or abandoned children. The program is impacting positively each year the life of at least 15 orphans/children.
3/ Participating in the Haiti post-earthquake (since 2010) and post-hurricane "Matthew" (since 2016) recovery programs, in partnership with the Fonkoze Foundation, to the benefit of poor women and children. Key objective is to get these children back to school and to provide some basic education to extremely poor women to prepare them for access to micro-credit to develop revenue-earning activities. This project is called "Chemen Lavi Mayo" (CLM), i.e. "on the Road to a Better Life". Since 2017 financial assistance includes the new Community School in isolated Pagesse, which now serves 220 children. Each dollar is going a long way in Haiti, and a good monitoring system and a strong local presence allow to properly control the use of funds disbursed locally through a special account managed by Fonkoze.
4/ Helping a few people in need in our local communities in the DC Area including MD, with specific actions for vulnerable children, families under hardship (education, food drive, protecting life, health care, Christmas gifts).
In 2017-18, we also assisted families victims of the Hurricanes "Harvey" in Texas & "Irma" in Florida .
