Multi-Purpose Community Centre (MPCC)

Project Description

The construction of a Multi-Purpose Community Centre (MPCC) for the St George Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Community in Heatherton will provide the crucial hub for Malyali Jacobite Christian migrants to connect, share and learn together. The MPCC will also be used as a venue for the Malayali community to celebrate and share their traditions with the wider community, promoting social cohesion and economic stimulus. The facilities of the MPCC will also be extended to the Heatherton community and the City of Kingston for events.
