Celebrate our first annual Health and Hope Day on June 21

We needed a day to celebrate the people, volunteers and companies across Canada who help us deliver health and hope. So we created Health and Hope Day.

Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC) is leading a movement – unique in Canada – that brings together a diverse network of women and men, charitable organizations and companies, donors and volunteers, healthcare professionals and humanitarians. We work together with one goal in mind: to increase access to medicine and improve health for the world’s most vulnerable children and communities. Every year we treat an estimated 500,000+ people in need.

We will be sharing our mission over the next few weeks culminating with our online celebration on Health and Hope Day on Thursday, June 21, 2018.

  1. Join the celebration on social media:

*Izzy Dolls are handmade with love by volunteers from across Canada who knit and crochet them in memory of Master Corporal Mark Isfeld. Mark’s mother Carol made them for her son and his unit of Canadian peacekeepers to give out to children who had lost everything. The dolls grew in popularity and HPIC is grateful to receive them for the children who come to the clinics and hospitals in the world’s most vulnerable communities. On the way to children, the dolls protect the medicines in HPIC’s Humanitarian Medical Kits. Each doll is unique just like the kids we treat. Choose a doll that speaks to you and share it on Health and Hope Day.

  1. Celebrate Health and Hope Day at work with your colleagues- ensure your intranet, email digital screens and displays feature Health and Hope Day too.
