This organization is run by honest and caring souls - and 100% of proceeds go to the poorest of the poor. It is an ideal way for us, so fortunate to live in America, to get funds to help the people who have so little.

I've received excellent reports on your current PHILIPPINE RELIEF
effort. Hats off to your long-established missionaries there who
are able to securely receive and distribute efficiently 100 % of the
donations you receive for this cause.

I appreciate the fact that your MISSIONARY ALLIANCE has been
helping those in need for over 28 years. The hundreds of comments
on your organization's effectiveness averaging 4.94 STARS out of
5.00 is commendable .

I am sending additional checks to you from three donors who want
to help the needy in The Philippines. Each appreciates that your
organization takes no salary and you cover all administration costs
so their donations go undiluted for exactly the purpose they have
chosen.

I note that Mary Queen of All Nations was one of the most reviewed
non-profits by www.greatnonprofits.org this month. You were highly
recognized in categories such as International, Human Services,
Education and Religion, and even topped those 4 categories in New
Jersey as most rated.

Prospective donors for Philippine Typhoon Relief would be well
served if your charity shows up in the Disaster Relief category or at
least the opening pages of this excellent www.greatnonprofits.org
website which is featuring Philippine relief options.

Congrats to your organization and the visionaries of Great Non-Profits
to enable donors to match up with charities to make our world a
better place in creating Win-Wins.

An impressive charity reaching out to dozens of countries and serving
thousands of people. Almost $ 800,000 in donations, all going to
the very poor.

Founder Merla practices what all of us strive for: Help thy neighbor
as you would like to be treated.

Missionaries from around the world outline their needs, and Mary
Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance helps whenever they can.

The missionaries report their results back to The Alliance Board &
The Board exercises due diligence that all donations are well spent.

Difficult to believe that such a perfect organization exists. The
founder's christian beliefs are evident in each act of charity.

Have seen many non profits in action, but can not think of any that
recycle 100% of their incoming donations to the intended purpose
of helping the impoverished become more self sufficient and have hope.

I am a volunteer and donor to this organization. MQAN is truly a wonderful charity organization run by volunteers. MQAN promotes self sustaining projects to the poor. 100% of the donations are used on these projects

I became of this organization through the founder whose love for Jesus is personal, tangible and so warm it transfers to others. That love spills over into loving and helping others, especially the poorest of the poor in the most basic of ways, to give them a chance to survive and thrive - from food, water, to education and very small business funding. It works. 100% of the donations go to the poor and missions. Priests and seminarians are given the basic finances or materials to do the work of God in areas that are so often forgotten. It proves that a little help, given willingly and smartly, often goes a very long way and produces much fruit.

I am a small donor to this worthwhile Missionary Alliance and wish I could give more. That is why I hope you will support the Alliance that does so much good. The Alliance is run openly, records published and tax information mailed. Weather it is supporting a student, giving a sewing machine, building a chapel, giving chicks, goats etc.the records and pictures are there to be seen. Please support this worthy Mission.

Rather then being a recipient of Mary Queen of all Nations Missionary Alliance (MQANMA) assistance, I have been very fortunate, so my role is that of a donor. Therefore my concern is whether the money that is donated is used effectively and efficiently. This is where MQANMA shines. Anyone who takes the trouble to review their newsletter will be amazed at how much good work is done all over the world with their limited resources. The "big" charities leave me with a nagging concern that I am dealing with a corporation out to make a cash profit, not a human profit. Since every cent that is donated is put back into the mission, I can sleep at night. But that's not the whole story. MQANMA is the rare grass roots charity that does what an individual would want to do himself - put the good directly in the hands of and change the lives of the people who actually need it.

I have ben a donor to this organization for the past three years. Their philosophy of helping the poorest of the poor with 100 per cent of their donation impressed me. When I learned of their many projects that they finance and how carefully they keep tract of every project,and every cent that is spent. I've attended a few of their meetings and have seen the many E-mails they receive asking for help. The self-reliance projects alone are inspiring. The "thank you" letters, pictures and E-mails tell a very moving story of how money well-spent can go a long way. They finance small projects that can reach or benefit the most people. They give the word "Charity" real meaning.

This charity is one of the only charities that uses every dollar, every cent that donors donate to help people. Merla uses the money to help the poor all over the world to build schools, dig wells, buy cows or seeds to empower people with self-sufficiency projects such as raising pigs, goats, chickens, cows, sheep, buffaloes, sewing and knitting machines, agricultural and gardening tools and fertilizers, carpentry tools, fishing boats and fishing nets, rickshaw and tricycle van for transportation service.
Her work is amazing.

I have been an occasional donor to this non-profit organization for almost three decades. It provides help and offers hope to the most desperate people in the third world countries. It is a very small missionary alliance founded and run by Merla Ricafranca who has dedicated all her life helping out the poorest of the poor of our brothers and sisters. She was born with a physical disability and will be celebrating her 75th birthday in March 2014. I have high hopes that she will get more funding for her organization to be able to go on funding self sufficiency projects for the very poor and providing assistance to people who are deprived of basic human needs.

I love very much Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance because I have the opportunity to share my wealth with the poor. Loving, caring, sharing is Christ who lives in us, within us, guiding us through daily living with happiness, sorrow and if we cannot walk by ourselves, HE carries us along through daily living.

I am Stanislaw, a donor and member of Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance. I am very proud of the Founder of this organization, Merla, who is a big part of my life. From the very moment I met her, I nominated her as my guardian angel. She is my sister-in-Christ. From the moment of her birth, she is a gift from heaven. She was born without any sign of life, but after baptism, life came back to her. As an effect of this traumatic birth, she was afflicted with cerebral palsy. Just imagine a person like Merla. She visited many poor countries and tried to help the poor families, communities, seminarians and students providing education, basic necessities, self-sufficiency projects to help the poor come up in life to have better life, health, housing, medical needs and sanitation. From the bottom of my heart, I am asking generous people for donations (every penny counts) to help the poor. 100% of the donations goes to help the poor rise above poverty. My guardian angel, Merla, shoulders all the operational expenses and she runs the operation in her own house, which I call Jesus' house. Because when I come to her house, I always feel the presence of Jesus around us. Thank you and God bless you all. Your brother-in-Christ, Stan.

I have been associated with Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance for 15 years and I constantly marvel at all that is accomplished to help the very poor people in so many countries, especially throughout the Third World. And the amazing thing is that this is done with very little funds.

The organization was founded 28 years ago by a woman who had cerebral palsy since birth. She wanted to join a convent and do missionary work for the very poor. Several times, ,her applications to join an order of nuns were refused. so she started her own missionary work and dedicated her life to this task.

She developed her own constitution and formed board of helpers. The Alliance received episcopal approval and a spiritual director was appointed. They also received tax exempt status from the government and make reports to them every year. Donors are kept abreast of all their donations for tax purposes. Accomplishment reports are done a few times a year. Every penny is recorded and is use in many poor missions throughout 40 countries. The funds are used for small projects, many of them self-sufficiency ones. The organization sometimes gives funds to buy tools so that the people can work with them to help themselves. For example, they buy fishing nets to go fishing,, shovels and rakes to work in the field to produce food for their families. Other times, we give funds for livestock for the people to raise and sell to earn money to help themselves. We also provide funds to buy cows, goats, sheep, chickens and pigs to multiply and sell them and the cows and goats to provide milk for the people. I could go on and on telling of the accomplishments of this Alliance. Our
Lord has certainly blessed us. We know that Our Lord will provide for us to continue despite the small amount of funds that is available to us. But we also know that Jesus has told us that what we do to the least of our brothers, we do unto Him.

If you care to know more about this organization, you can email us at mqanmission@gmail.com to receive our newsletters and our accomplishment reports.


G00 bless, Deacon Roger

This is a very worthwhile organization, reaching out to people to help them become self-sufficient. This approach builds people up instead of keeping them in line for a handout.

I am very pleased to endorse this organization. It serves at the grassroots level, touching people through person to person contact. It reaches out to real world needs at the individual or local community. There is good feedback from the recipients. All donations are used to help these people. It is like the story of the mustard seed, it seems small but it has grown and has produced abundant fruit. And by their fruits you will know them.
