Stories from Asia – breaking down walls & working across divides
May 3 @ 19:00 - 20:00
MCC and Manitoba Council for International Co-operation present an evening with Rebecca Burkholder and Blaine Derstine, Area Directors for Central Southern and Northeast Asia.
Breaking down walls; working across divides – peace building under-girds all of MCC’s work, but what does that look like in real-life situations? In war torn countries such as Afghanistan and North Korea, MCC partners with communities to end hunger, provide education, access clean water, and empower families to ensure their own livelihoods.
The past 40 years of conflict in Afghanistan has taken its toll and women especially are traumatized by the external violence of war and the culture of gender inequity. MCC is working with partners in Afghanistan and across Asia to bring a glimmer of hope to those affected.
