MSC is a faith based non-profit organization founded by Monsignor Gregory Ramkissoon under the principle of caring in 1978 and the organization has remained committed to helping those in need.
Today, MSC serves over 500 children, young adults and families who belong to the most vulnerable groups in our society. The population of their homes includes children and young adults with disabilities, children affected by HIV/AIDS and teen mothers along with their babies. MSC also manages a number of community outreach programmes to combat poverty and provide education.
Mr. Smith has been supporting MSC since his first visit there some eight years ago but wants to do more for the organization. His goal now is to raise enough food and funds to provide three daily meals for children housed at MSC for the next year.
"MV Musc is pleased to partner with the MSC for this food drive," stated Mr. Smith, "It is difficult for MSC to provide for so many children with all their other additional costs. We want to ensure the children get proper nourishment , especially those who are on medication, so we are happy to contribute to this great cause."
