Children’s Health Foundation pledges $2.2 million to help Island kids

This year, the Children’s Health Foundation will disperse $2.2 million dollars in funding to improve the health of kids on Vancouver Island, the foundation announced today (May 5).

“Our funding helps children’s programs thrive and grow, said Linda Hughes, CEO and president of the CHF. “We are grateful to our donors who support our work and who believe in giving kids on the island the best possible care.”

Thirty organizations across the island will receive funding this year, including 20 programs in Greater Victoria that will provide support to nearly forty thousand children.

The CHF has invested over $42 million in programs that benefit kids over the last 30 years.
