KAY MORRIS FOUNDATION (KMF)
Kay Morris Foundation (“KMF”) is a Federally Incorporated Non-Profit NGO dedicated to improving the lives of women, children, youths and homeless people in Canada, Africa, and other Third World Countries.
The Voice of the Voiceless.
To help bridge the gap of sickness and poverty to deprived children and pregnant women, by offering resources in the prevention and awareness of HIV/AIDS, Maternal Mortality and Malaria; by providing preventative education, basic medical supplies, clothes, toiletries, and school supplies, for a healthier society throughout our communities, Canada and the nation of Africa.
● To relieve poverty in developing nations by providing food and other basic supplies to persons in need.
● To develop or promote public health in developing nations by educating and instructing the public on prevention of, and curative measures for, health problems and by researching and documenting changes in the health of the community.
We envision a world where poverty will be eradicated, and at-risk children are nourished and not malnourished; food is a basic human right. Youths in vulnerable communities will have an opportunity to become leaders; women will not miscarry because of poor nutritional health; and people living in vulnerable communities will not have fast foods as their first choice, but they will have full access to fresh, healthy nutritious food that is readily available in their communities. We envision a world where at-risk people will have food security.
OUR FOUNDER & VISIONARY
KMF is an organization founded by aspirator and main architect, Dr. Kay Morris. In Canada she responded to the COVID 19 pandemic by implementing the Meals In Motion Food Security Project which provides healthy food and groceries to vulnerable single mothers, children, youths, low-income families, and homeless people who are struggling to make ends meet.
Her humanitarian missions first started in Ghana and Nigeria in 2004. KMF has donated medicines, food, School supplies, and toiletries to 46,000 refugees at the UNHCR Buduburam Refugee Camp in Africa. Dr. Kay Morris saw the plight of the marginalized women and children and people dying from HIV/AIDS and malaria. In 2006, she was instrumental in brokering $1.5 million dollars in anti-retro viral meds for people living with HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa. She decided to make a difference to be a part of the solution to the crisis. She uses her gift of music to spread awareness, raise funds to advocate and support her humanitarian causes against Poverty, HIV/AIDS, maternal mortality, and Food Insecurity. She is a Mentor to many youths around the Globe, a Personal Development Life Coach, and she also empowers women in conferences around the world.
