Merry Christmas from MaterCare

A Very Happy and Blessed Christmas to you all!

MaterCare International has been operating for over 20 years in small part part thanks to supporters like you. In 1995 a meeting of an international group of Catholic OB/GYNs were convened in Liverpool, England which led to the formal establishment of MaterCare International (MCI) Canada. The meeting coincided with the appeal, by the late Holy Father Pope John-Paul II in the Encyclical, Evangelium Vitae (the Gospel of Life), for more to be done for life in particular by health professionals.

“To the people of life for life”, “to offer this world of ours new signs of hope, and work to ensure that a new culture of human life will be affirmed, for the building of an authentic civilisation of truth and love” (E.V.6)

“To all healthcare personnel who have a unique responsibility to be guardians and servants of human life”. (E.V.89)

“A specific contribution must come from [...] Universities, Centres, Institutes and Committees of Bioethics and places of scientific and technological research.” (E.V.98) 

Today, we operate in several countries around the world, and our current project in Isiolo is operating at double its capacity serving mothers, children and their families in rural Isiolo, Kenya.

It is all thanks to supporters like you donating their time, their resources and their encouragement.

Thank you for your support. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
