As many of you are already aware, I have been supporter of Child Haven for many years so this gives me great pleasure to promote their upcoming fundraiser event in Vancouver.
Child Haven are a Canadian based charity founded by Bonnie and Fred Cappuccino of Maxville, ON in 1985. Inspired by the ideals and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, Child Haven International is a registered not for profit charity that assists children and women in developing countries, who are in need of food, education, health care, shelter and clothing, emotional and moral support.
Child Haven opened it’s children’s home in Kathmandu in 1993 – it’s been a delight for me to visit Kanya and the kids every time I am in Kathmandu. What’s also neat is the collaboration between Child Haven and SIRC.
Sometimes our Community Based Rehab specialists come across kids in remote villages who are in need of care and attention, and Child Haven has helped us find the appropriate assistance for them. SIRC has also been able to provide guidance as to the appropriate medical care for the folks Child Haven come across whilst doing their community outreach. Don’t you just love when two groups work together – what a difference it can make to the lives of those in need!
But I digress. If any of you readers find yourself in Vancouver on Tuesday February 2nd, 2016 then come along to what promises to be a great concert at the Vancouver Rowing Club in Stanley Park. The concert features outstanding Canadian songwriters and performers – a concert not to be missed! For just $35, you also get dinner plus a bottle of wine, and a chance to bid on some great silent auction items.
If you are interested in getting some tickets, please call my friend Katherine Doyle on her mobile 604 220 9324.
Hope to see you there!
