A Word of Thanks….

March 29, 2017 Posted in Blog Posts

Is joy a sign of generosity (as said Mother Teresa) or, is generosity a sign of joy?

Whatever the case, generosity was shining joyfully on Saturday March 11th at Drake Medox College in Vancouver!  Students, Instructors and Administrative Staff contributed funds far beyond initial hopes and goals.

A Bake Sale fund raiser yielded $600.00.  This amount will be tripled by the Canadian government which translates to a grand total of $1800.00!!

The Cause?

Maternal and Child Health in Africa through World Vision Canada programs.

How will the money be used?

This money will be allocated to needy communities in a number of African countries – Uganda, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Sudan, and others – to the cause of improving maternal and child health through the further development of

  • Accessible clinics
  • Community outreach programs
  • Nutrition and hygiene education
  • Assisted birthing
  • Pre and Post-Natal care
  • Awareness education: signs & symptoms of illness, sexual health
  • Availability of Medication
  • Modernization of Healthcare facilities

We thank the students and staff from Drake Medox College from the bottom of our hearts!

“We highly regard Community Support Work related schooling/credentials when making hiring decisions. The schooling indicates to us that applicants have some systematic training in the field and are passionate about quality care; this means they are likely to be high performers and stay longer because they fully understand what the job involves. Retention is a huge consideration, those that are likely to stay longer will always be highly sought after as it takes time to build working relationships and relationships with person served.”

Success Story

Through my own personal experience I believe I am able to give to others the level of care, compassion and love that was bestowed upon me during my time of need. Drake Medox College has provided me with the greatest opportunity through their Community Support Worker program, with being able 'pay it forward ' and make a difference in this world. Life is about touching the lives of people around us no matter who they are or where they have come from.
