Today we thank Variety – The Children’s Charity of BC for selecting the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation to receive a $15,000 grant from the Variety Cares Fund. This funding, which Variety has been giving for several years, goes toward paying unforeseen expenses for mothers and their families who must travel outside of their home communities for medical care. They may be experiencing late-stage pregnancy medical issues, difficult and/or premature births, and other challenging situations. Expenses covered can include accommodations for mothers and family members, travel, food, and more.
This funding is critical to alleviating the financial burden mothers and their families can experience during these already tumultuous times in their lives. We are so grateful to Variety for partnering with us on this very important initiative.
