MaterCare serves the needs of mothers worldwide, and we do all this from an office in St. John's, Newfoundland. Our office needs a new color printer and ongoing supplies, but we at MaterCare spend well below the industry average on administration, putting over 95 percent of all donations directly back into projects!
MaterCare has been endorsed by many highly reguarded international figures, including:
His Holiness, Pope Francis
