MCC sends food and relief to Cubans in crisis.More than 20,000 kg of supplies distributed by local BIC churches!
The situation in Cuba was incredibly dire when a shipment of MCC relief kits and canned food arrived.
"People have told me they haven’t had an egg or any kind of meat for six months," says Bonnie Klassen, MCC area director for South America and Mexico. “They’re out of toothpaste, so they’re brushing their teeth with soap. And not even commercial soap, mind you, but soap they’ve made themselves."
So when the Brethren in Christ Church of Cuba (BICCC) distributed some 20,000 kg of MCC relief kits, hygiene kits and canned chicken, it was cause for celebration and thanksgiving.
"We are grateful because today we see the answer to our prayers, what we have been praying for over a long time," says José Gonzalez, pastor of the BICCC church in Santa Clara. "We see that what we thought was impossible is possible. We see that we are in the hands of God. Thank you for this help."
