Proceeds from the run will fund 2 important projects that will greatly impact the lives of many children in Ottawa and Palestine:
1) UNRWA's Community Mental Health Program (CMHP) to help empower vulnerable refugees in Gaza, especially children, to better cope with the extreme challenges they face on a daily basis. Through the program, UNRWA provides school counselling, group sessions, and and even at home counselling for those in need who are unable to travel.
2) CHEO's youth mental health program. What was once thought of as an unusual surge in the need for children and youth mental health services has become the new normal. Since 2010, CHEO has seen a 75% increase in mental health emergency visits. Last year, over 3,100 children came to the CHEO Emergency Department in need of mental health support. Your participation in the ORFP charity run will help doctors, nurses and staff provide the care and support these patients need.
We raised more than $35,000 C.D. last year help us reach our fundraising goal of $40,000 C.D. this year!
