2016-2017 Fundraising Campaign

The Board of Directors of the CHILD Foundation has identified and approved the following priorities for 2016-2017:
(1) Assist the Rotary Club of Calgary Centennial and The Rotary Foundation in implementing a project: to install 1,350 bio-sand filters in the village to prevent water-born diseases among children. Under the leadership of Mr. Peter McKenzie-Brown of Rotary Club of Calgary Centennial (supported by Dr. Anil Jain), this project is well underway and will be implemented by December 2018.

(2) Assist the Rotary organization in installing an X-ray machine at the hospital.

(3) Examine feasibility of extending the reach of the hospital by providing services to outlying areas through medi-van.

Funds raised by the Foundation for the purpose of these projects will be used for them. Since the CHILD Foundation is a CRA-registered charity, all donations are tax deductible and a receipt will be issued promptly.

Thank you to everyone for your support!
