The MSC Cruises Get on Board for Children collaboration with UNICEF continues to help children in need all around the world. To date, MSC Cruises has helped donate over €2.8m thanks to the cruise lines passengers.
MSC started their partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund back in 2009, since then it has helped combat poverty in Brazil with the millions raised. In a recent press release, MSC explained that 126 vulnerable communities in São Paolo and Rio de Janeiro were helped with children in these areas gaining much better access to education.
The start of 2014 saw MSC Cruises extend this collaboration with UNICEF, and now their aim is to help malnourished children in crisis areas and developing countries. Help will be given by providing Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food, aka RUTF, which will help treat malnutrition in these areas of the world.
This partnership with MSC Cruises will help thousands of children, which asks for just a €1 donation from MSC cruise guests at the check-out as part of the Get on Board for Children programme. MSC Cruises not only help the cause by taking donations, but they also help raise awareness by organising edutainment activities for children cruising with MSC.
Cruise Ship News will keep our readers updated on the partnership of UNICEF and MSC Cruises over the following year.
