I am writing from Amaro Kelle town, Segeni Zone, SNNPRS, Ethiopia, within the geographic area of Apostolic Vicariate (Diocese) of Awassa. Amaro Kelle is in remote countryside region, located 205 km from the regional capital of Awassa and 480 km from the national capital of Addis Ababa.
Since 2014, as a Catholic Church pastoral and social/development in Amaro district, we have continued to work towards “Integral Human Development” through the opening and running of multiple social services including Laflitsa Catholic Complete Primary School, children’s social services (nutrition, literacy and other children’s ministries, women promotion activities, and other services towards the poorest and the Orphan children supported also by this nonprofit alliance namely: Mary Queen of all Nations Missionary alliance through Merla Ricafranca who is the Director and founder. Fr. Pius Prosper Nagawantu is the School Director.
Through donations received since 2004 from Mary Queen of Missionary Alliance, 17 Orphan students have been and are continued to be supported 100% in their education, food, clothing, shelter and medical. Today out of 17 students, four of them have succeeded to join Secondary education level having performed very well at primary school level, hoping that tomorrow they will become human beings with full dignity and self supportive.
Below are some students now in secondary level education

Many victims of the worst typhoon in the Philippines has been left devastated and thank God that there are many people who have helped them. One of them is Mary Queen of All Nations. Thank you that there are great people who are willing to extend their service to the poor. This group will truly be blessed. Thank you so much.
MQAN is group of kind and generous people, led by the selfless Merla Ricafranca, who work diligently for the sake of the God's needy. The organization sends 100% of donations of cash and goods to charities around the world to bring hope and love to so many in need. All the while, they are inspiring those of us who get to know this wonderful organization!
Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance has done a phenomenal job for the past 29 years in
helping the poor, the needy, and the downtrodden. The work they do world-wide should be a head line
in major newspapers! As a member of the public, I am SO pleased to learn about organizations like
this one that work so very hard to distribute help and caring where it is the most needed. There are many prayers in my heart for the poor of this planet, and it makes me have hope for the future of humanity to know that Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance is doing such a noble job in the world to alleviate suffering. God bless them!

This is a wonderful Charity! They truly promote many Self-Sustaining projects and provide a great "hand up" to some of the poorest people in 49 countries. I love the fact that 100% of the Donations recieved are really used for the the poor in helping with education, nutritional programs, housing and medical needs for many of the blind, disabled, orphaned , disadvantaged and mainourished. None of their donations are used for salaries or for administrative costs, which is another feature I love about this group! They are truly a source of HOPE for the Hopless!!! They are definitely deserving of a 5 Star rating in my book!!
Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance was founded 29 years ago here at Assumption Parish in Morristown when Bishop Jacob came here with the Pope's blessing. One of our parishioners founded th is charity which began supporting three seminarians and has grown to an organization that has supported missionaries all over the world and has donated over $750,000 to the most needy causes. This 501c3 charity takes no salary and its founder, Merla Ricafranca and the board absorb all administrative costs. Consequently, 100% of all donations are used for direct aid to charity.
if you want to meet the True helping hand of God to people who have dire needs both physical and spiritual around the world , this is the organization that epitomize such deeds....
My good friend told me about this organization and as a fellow missionary who cares greatly for working amongst the poorest of the poor, my heart goes to any organization, especially one dedicated to Our Lady, that does such wonderful work! May God bless you and give you all the strength and support that you need to continue doing the wonderful work you do.
