From poverty to a bright future

Due to the war in Ukraine, MWB is suspending the registration of new family sponsorships as our staff in Ukraine focus on our emergency response. With families forced to flee for safety, being able to visit and work with families on a  consistent basis is a challenge as circumstances are fluid and shifting day-to-day.
If you have any questions regarding families and/or children you support in Ukraine through MWB Canada, please reach out via email to mwbcanada@mwbi.org anytime. We will do our best to get you updates as fast as we can from our team on the ground.

Please pray for Ukraine and all impacted by the war.

We work with families over a five-year period, addressing immediate as well as long term needs, and helping them journey towards self-sufficiency. 

Almost all of the families we work with live below the poverty line and struggle day-to-day to survive. Many have complex, multiple needs and there are often issues such as addiction and domestic violence that need to be addressed.

Sharing faith

It is the love of Christ that motivates everything we do – and our family coordinators share their faith with families where there is interest, encourage them to become part of a local church, and disciple family members who want to grow in their faith. 

It is our joy to see families resolving conflicts, restoring relationships, coming to know Jesus, being filled with joy & peace, and working towards self-sufficiency projects that will see them break the cycle of poverty for future generations, for their community and beyond.

Building strong relationships

We offer one-to-one support, providing assistance to families struggling with anything from trauma to unresolved conflict to anxiety. We also provide skill building & training, helping adults in the family to find employment or set up a micro-enterprise.
We support parents in raising their children, helping to ensure children are properly cared for, and that they remain in the family home rather than going to state-run institutions.
We offer practical support: food and clothing, medical help, furniture where needed, and winter supplies such as fuel or firewood.
We give educational support to children, enrolling them in After-School clubs where they receive help with homework and ensuring they have the school supplies they need. Many children also have the joy of going on Summer Camp, and we make it possible for them to celebrate Christmas, Easter and birthdays.
