WELCOME TO MARCCH
Since 2001 MARCCH has been working in Chechnya to help the child victims of the wars that raged in that hapless country. Over the years we have, amongst other things, delivered vital equipment and medicines to the main children’s hospital in the capital, Grozny; supplied 300,000 syringes for TB testing to the Chechen health authorities; and helped an orphanage for Chechen children in the neighbouring republic of Ingushetia with rent, food and clothing. In the past year we undertook our most recent project there by fundraising for, and providing, a standby generator and equipping a sensor room at a school for the partially blind outside Grozny.
At present in Chechnya itself children are no longer the victims of an ongoing war. We have therefore changed our focus to helping the children of Syrian families of Chechen origin who are suffering because of the terrible war in Syria. Coordinating our efforts with our partners (Society of the Friends of the Chechen-Ingush Republic and Chechen Welfare Society For Women Swieleh) in Jordan, where many Syrians of Chechen origin have taken refuge, we have begun to render assistance that has already been of benefit. MARCCH has provided a van which is used to provide transportation, food and supplies for the children and their families. Of course this does not mean that these children are any more important than all the other child victims of the war in Syria but it recognises that minorities can be especially vulnerable in war zones.
Our Mission is to help child victims of war. We neither hold nor express views on the political background to the conflicts involved. Our main concern is to relate to all we seek to help in ways that we hope show sensitivity and tact. To that end we always seek, wherever we work, to build a network of friends and partners to help us navigate our way to safe and productive means of assisting children wherever there is a need. Thanks to this approach we spend your donations as intended - doing the most good for the greatest number of children possible.
Our whole focus is on the needs of the children. Childhood is a very short time, full of learning and growth. There is no time to lose, for a child whose whole world is violence and ruin. We should act NOW to provide the help and treatment that can only come from outside the region. In order to dontate to Marcch, please click the DONATE button. Donating is fast and easy and will only take a minute.
If you would like to help us with our work please support us to any extent you can. MARCCH is evaluating new projects to help more children escape the consequences of a vicious war and your help can make a huge difference. Our partners and ourselves are all volunteers and we bear virtually all our administrative costs, so that your donations are of the greatest benefit to the children you wish to help.
