Since 2009, Tamil Canadian Walk has raised over $500,000 for deserving charities in Canada and around the world – Sick Kids Foundation (2009), Canadian Cancer Society (2010), Amnesty International (2011), Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (2012), Holland Bloorview Foundation (2013), Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation (2014), Sampur Resettlement (2015), Canada Batticaloa Friendship Farm (2016) and Thennamarawady Resettlement (2017).
The 2018 recipient is no exception to this amazing network of charities. This year, Tamil Canadian walkers will be fundraising for the Northern Province Palliative Care Initiative, a joint venture with Cancer Aid North and East (CANE), Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration (TWCC) and International Medical Health Organization Canada (IMHO Canada).
This initiative has the power to transform thousands of lives in war-affected Northern Province. Walkers will be raising funds to improve and expand a community mobile unit that will serve cancer and non-cancer palliative patients in their homes. Tax receipts are available to all donations over $25. Make Every Day Count! #tamilcanadianwalk2018 #MakeEveryDayCount #palliativecare #northernprovince #srilanka #lka #sustainabledevelopment #SDGs
