ICNA Relief Canada contributes over $150,000 to COVID-19 efforts at Trillium Health Partners

We are pleased to announce that ICNA Relief Canada has contributed over $150,000 to Trillium Health Partners (THP) to battle COVID-19.

COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic and after months of intense preparation, THP is now on the front-line in the fight against the virus. In this period of heightened need, THP needs to respond quickly as the impact of the virus grows.

Responding quickly is exactly what ICNA Relief Canada has done. Their generous donation will support the hospital’s highest-priority equipment needs to care for COVID-19 patients.

“When we saw the strain on our health care system, we knew we had to act decisively,” said Ijaz Tahir, Chair of ICNA Relief Canada. “This gift is part of a larger campaign where we as a Muslim community are stepping up to help our neighbours in need.”

Trillium Health Partners is the largest community academic hospital in the province, looking after a population of 2.2 million people. With between 30 to 70 percent of Canadians expected to get the virus, according to Canada’s Minister of Health, THP will see a growing number of patients. Those most impacted by the virus will require care in THP’s intensive care units.

“It is inspiring to see organizations like ICNA Relief Canada come forward during a time of unprecedented need,” said Caroline Riseboro, President & CEO, Trillium Health Partners Foundation. “Thank you for stepping up to help Trillium Health Partners respond to COVID-19 by donating funds that will match the crucial gifts that others in the community make, doubling their impact!”

During this unprecedented time, please consider giving a gift to Trillium Health Partners to support the pressing needs of the hospital and staff as they respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, knowing every dollar you give will be doubled, thanks to community leaders like ICNA Relief Canada.
