Since gaining independence with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Ukraine has struggled with its identity. Internal divisions, government actions, corruption, economic inequality, and international intervention have led to to revolution, rebellion, and an overall unsafe, and inadequate life for many Ukrainians. There are currently about 800, 000 internally displaced people who are in need of basic services and aid.
In Ukraine MMC lends a helping hand in the form of small restorations projects within facilities such as orphanages, child care centers, geriatric centers, remote health clinics, and rural schools. We help to ensure that the residents have the dignity of functioning sanitation and hygiene facilities, secure windows, and working kitchens.
MMC is involved in many projects in Ukraine to help Ukrainians “create their own healthy communities.”
