When Hurricane Matthew slammed into Haiti with 230 km/h winds, heavy rains and dangerous storm surges in October of 2016, you were ready to help.
You showed you cared about the most vulnerable children and families during a catastrophic emergency… those living in poverty with disabilities.
You showed your love by giving $207,230.
1,367 of the poorest, most forgotten children in the world will feel a hug of love and hope because healinghug donors sent medical care and a soft, comforting teddy bear in 2016.
Thanks to you, these kids know there’s someone in Canada who cares and believes in them.

Homes4Hope is a growing group of individuals committed to giving homes and health to people with disabilities living in the poorest countries in Africa.
Again this year, you and other cbm donors partnered with Habitat for Humanity and Homes4Hope* to build accessible homes in Ethiopia. You gave the house keys to 20 families in 2016! A warm, strong, safe home means a happier, healthier family.
Thanks to Ottobock Canada for their donation of more than 7 skids of medical supplies including mobility devices such as wheelchairs, transport strollers and early intervention therapy equipment.
These medical devices will help children heal, thrive and discover the world around them.
