Health care in Canada costs a typical Canadian family more than $11,000. However, 5.3 million Canadians are living with some sort of disability that affects them physically, over 200,000 of those are children. Many non-profits across Canada provide equipment and services to these children. By fundraising and donating to these non-profits, we will be able to help ease the stress of medical debt in families of children with special needs.
According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, 1.2 million children and youth in Canada are affected by mental illness, yet less then 20% will receive appropriate treatment. Many of which will develop a mental illness in their early adulthood. However, many non-profits across Canada provide treatment and services to children that are affected by mental illness.. By fundraising and donating to these non-profits, more children from economically strained backgrounds can get diagnosed and treatment.
