2020 MCC Festival for World Relief

Tarps cover thatched huts in the Mubimbi IDP camp outside of Minova in eastern Congo. Once a year, MCCs partner glise du Christ au Congo Ministre des Refugis et des Urgences (ECC-MERU; Church of Christ in Congo Ministry of Refugees and Emergencies) distributes tarps to displaced families living at Mubimbi and Poste camps in the town of Minova. The tarps help protect the thatch houses from the rain.
People who live in these camps have fled fighting between armed groups that have killed and raped people and burned, pillaged or destroyed their homes and farms in rural or forested areas in the eastern provinces of North and South Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo). In addition to tarps, MCC/ECC-MERU provide education for all children through grade 12 and a health clinic for treatment of common illnesses. At various times, both camps have been part of food security projects.

In the Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo

For the past 50 years, MCC supporters across the Lower Mainland have gathered to generously raise funds to support uprooted and vulnerable people at the MCC Festival for World Relief. Over 790 million people do not have enough to eat. Join us this year as we raise funds to help families in The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo).

The violence and death that many Congolese have witnessed is unfathomable: millions of people have been displaced from their homes after decades of conflict. Through MCC partners, this project will provide agricultural training, food security, income generation, and COVID-19 prevention to hundreds of families living in Internally Displaced Peoples camps.

This year the MCC Festival has a 6:1 match! For every dollar you donate – six dollars will go to help uprooted and vulnerable people in DR Congo. Find out more here!

MCC Cyclathon

 MCC Cyclathon

For the past 11 years, the MCC Cyclathon has been a great way to get involved at the MCC Festival for World Relief. This year we invite you to participate again as we raise funds for food security projects in The Democratic Republic of Congo!

Helmets are mandatory, and water bottles are strongly suggested. There will be one water station on the 50 km route.  As the routes are on public roads, all traffic rules must be observed.

Families, churches, and those wishing to participate as a team can create a group. Multiple registrations can be completed at the same time by selecting the appropriate number of people from the drop-down menu in each ride category, but team members can also sign up individually by searching for a group that has already been created. Please call 604-850-6639 and ask to speak with Luke if you are having trouble using this feature.

Although there is no registration fee, a donation of $50 per rider ($100 per family) is suggested. Please include this donation on your pledge form or give online using the information below. As this is a fundraising event, we ask that each cyclist attempt to raise additional funds. Fill out the form (which can be found here) and use it to record the requested information for each donor. Be sure to print clearly and remember to include your name, address, and phone number. All donations of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt.

Donations can be made by credit card here or by calling 604-850-6639. The donor will need to include your (the rider’s) name in this process. The steps are provided on the site.

On the day of the ride, bring the completed pledge form and all the monies you have collected in an envelope.  Submit this at the check-in table, identify yourself, and submit your collected donations. If needed, maps of the routes and contact phone numbers will be available there.

If you have any questions, contact us at 604-850-6639.

This year there is a 6:1 Match! For every dollar you donate – six dollars will go to help uprooted and vulnerable people in DR Congo.

As usual, there will be three routes:
