Medical Care


"MIC has made a wonderful change in my life. It has made me improve in my work and to be a better person. This Foundation helps children with their high school fees through a scholarship and gives supplies to the school. They are also giving away tablets for your studies and much more. The Foundation was launched at the Mt. Waddy Primary School. They treated the students and gave us t shirts too. When the treat was over we all took pictures, and they were published in the newspaper and sent to other countries."
