Palestine & Israel
MCC, which has worked in this region since 1949, supports a wide variety of Palestinian and Israeli peace-building initiatives. These include conflict resolution among Palestinians, education among Israelis on injustices to Palestinians and dialog between Palestinians and Israelis. MCC supports agricultural research and development in the Bethlehem area with funds from the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and supports the improvement of wells and water pipes in the northern West Bank. With Global Family sponsorships, MCC supports a school in Zababdeh and a children's center in Khan Younis, Gaza.
