For more than 30 years MPC has been part of the Mukuru community comprising over 20 informal settlement villages with a population of 600,000.  Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, in the Spirit of their Foundress Catherine McAuley, MPC endeavours to give children, adults and families, including those with disabilities, hope for a better and brighter future.  Located on 5 different sites within a 3km radius and a staff of over 130 members, the outreach is considerable.
