All children within our communities will be safe and healthy, and families will have access to timely medical care and emotional support when it is required.
The purpose of the Nelson and Area Friends of the Family Foundation Foundation is to provide monetary aid for travel and accommodation for medical treatment for children stricken with serious illness or injury and the families.
- We recognize the distress a family experiences when dealing with a childhood medical crisis. Consequently, we will keep the best interests of the child and the family in mind and act accordingly.
- We understand that a crisis is not predictable and that sometimes timing is crucial. We will make arrangements for assistance in the best time possible.
- We recognize that the community wants to help families in need. Therefore, we will help facilitate community assistance in the most appropriate manner possible.
- We realize that the need for children to travel away from our community to access specialized medical support may never cease. Therefore, the Nelson and Area Friends of the Family Foundation Foundation will continually take steps to raise funds.
