MSC Cruises has announced that it has raised more than €8 million, or approximately US$9.5 million, for UNICEF thanks to contributions from its guests. The funds raised are used to provide malnourished children with Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF). To-date, more than 6.5 million sachets of RUTF have been delivered to children in Ethiopia, South Sudan, Somalia and Malawi.

“We are delighted to have reached this new contribution milestone, thanks to the generosity of our guests.  As a family-run company, we care deeply about the wellbeing of families around the world,” said Pierfrancesco Vago, executive chairman of MSC Cruises. “Through the funds raised on board our ships, thanks to our ‘Get on Board for Children’ initiative, we are able to provide life-saving food to severely malnourished children around the world where and when most needed.”
