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.”

Since the conflict in Ukraine began, support has been given to the Ukrainian people through financial aid and medical supply deliveries.
Our in-country managers have shifted their focus from pre-conflict projects to the current crisis. They have been coordinating medical supply deliveries and supporting the many displaced persons who have made it to western Ukraine. A portion of funding previously designated toward infrastructure projects has been redirected to provide immediate aid in camps and villages.
With war waging within Ukraine, MMC has put all current Ukrainian infrastructure projects on hold.
Our focus now is providing urgent humanitarian aid to the people affected by the on-going conflict.
