‘‘Unless a conscious war is waged by the afflicted individuals and responsible people who control the world’s strategic resources, social welfare securities and its attendant poverty will remain a socioeconomic weapon of mass destruction.’’
The Mass Social Welfare Scheme (MSWS) is a nationwide welfare provider to all classes of people across the social divide in Ghana and across Africa. MSWS is a non-profit organization registered under the Laws of the Republic of Ghana.
The organization was launched in April 2013 and is poised to take its position as the largest social intervention-based organization in the country employing an envisaged 5,000 strong "army of helpers" and directly impacting the lives of thousands of the most vulnerable in the Ghanaian society.
