Committed to ending poverty together with you

Musu K. Taylor-Lewis

President & CEO, Food for the Hungry Canada

Musu joined FH Canada in 2023 with over 25 years experience in the not-for-profit and public sectors working in community economic development, communications, public relations, and theology. She seeks to live out her conviction to work with the global Church and desires all Canadians to get involved in working towards a more equitable world.

Musu was born in Edmonton, Alta to Sierra Leonean (West Africa) parents. By her early 20s she had lived in seven cities on three continents. Such a multicultural upbringing forms the basis of her interests and fires her passion for international development. She lived in B.C. for over two decades while she and her husband raised their family. She has roots and a wide community in Western Canada. Currently, Musu and her husband live in Aurora, Ont.
