While COVID has disrupted so many things, it has not slowed or mitigated the challenges faced by so many people among us; those struggling with mental health, those who live with disabilities, the young people who don’t have a safe place to sleep every night.
There are people in the community who do not have any visitors, palliative care patients who need care and company at home, and young students doing everything they can to finish school, despite the odds being stacked against them.
Despite everything, MCM’s work to help these groups has kept going. And with your help, they can access the holistic support and services they need to create their best future, their way.
John* came to us earlier this year desperate for support. He had just been made the sole guardian of his four sons, but he was living in a rooming house at the time.
In this strange new world, we’re all finding ourselves adapting our lives in different ways. For our staff, this involves rethinking how they interact with the people we support.
While so many of us are protecting our vulnerable people by keeping our distance, our nurses are ensuring those in palliative care receive the dignity and care they deserve.
Without your loyal support, we couldn't do the vital work that we do.
That's why we promise to uphold the highest ethical standards – at
every turn – to reward your trust.
