Mico Old Students Association (MOSA) recently handed over $1.5 million towards Mico University College’s COVID Relief Fund, aimed at assisting students affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr Asburn Pinnock, President of the Mico University College said the fund was conceptualised in May to assist to students who are unable to connect to their classes remotely due to a lack of resources.

The Mico COVID Relief Fund will assist with the purchase of laptops, care packages and tuition costs. It will also help the school cater to the additional needs of the students.

President of Mico Old Students Association (MOSA), Dr Merritt Henry commented: “I am passionate and excited about the funds raised and I am really happy the alumni locally and internationally went the extra mile to meet the needs of the students.”

Burchell Duhaney, Secretary Manager of the Mico Foundation and Past President of MOSA, called on all graduates to support the fund as the institution continues to prioritise the welfare of its students.

“We have come a long way but let us continue to increase our efforts to do more for our students,” he said.
