Soap, fabric, towels

MCC ships soap, fabric and towels to people across the world.

MCC provides soap to hospitals, orphanages and refugee camps in countries where soap is expensive or difficult to obtain locally. People in countries such as Afghanistan, Bosnia, Haiti, Nicaragua, Serbia, Russia and Ukraine have received soap from MCC.

Bolts of new cloth are frequently requested where fabric is expensive or hard to obtain. These bolts are often used to sew clothing for children. Recipients can also use full pieces of at least 2 yards / 1.8m long for quilt and comforter pieces.

The versatility of towels makes them a frequently requested item. People in such places as Bosnia, Haiti, Liberia, Nicaragua, Serbia and Ukraine have received towels from MCC.
