Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) 2015 Annual Campaign

posted March 31, 2015




Montreal,March 26, 2015 – CANADIAN HADASSAH-WIZO (CHW) is pleased to announce that the 2015 Annual Campaign, Big Needs, Caring Hearts, is underway in support of CHW projects in Israel. This pillar of CHW’s fundraising efforts provides $1.42 million in aid to children in CHW’s 6 daycare Centres, at-risk youth at CHW’s 4 schools, women and seniors at CHW’s 2 Community Centres; and helps those seeking life-saving medical care at CHW’s 2 hospitals. In Canada, CHW supports Canadian Young Judaea (CYJ) summer camps.


“For me, the theme for this year’s Annual Campaign encompasses everything that our donors and volunteers do for CHW,” says  Claudia Goldman, CHW National President. “Each has their own personal story for why they support the precious work of  CHW. And together, they make a statement about their strong belief in supporting the Jewish people by engaging in the mission of CHW, which shows what huge hearts they all have.”


Donations received through the Annual Campaign make a world of difference for those in CHW’s care. For almost 100 years, the organization has continued to ensure that immediate needs are met by continually reviewing the pressing issues facing children, patients, and women at CHW projects and to deliver a solution. A clear example of this is the newly formed French Na’aleh Program. Youth from Frenchspeaking countries, facing mounting Anti-Semitism, have found a safe haven at CHW’s Hadassim dormitory school, allowing these students to focus on their studies in a secure environment. Eli, a student in the program from Paris, says, “Since being at CHW Hadassim, I no longer hide my Jewish heritage. At home, I could not go out in public with my Star of David necklace on. Here, I wear it proudly and with confidence.” Through the CHW Annual Campaign, a child at-risk, like Eli, is provided a home away from home, and receives counselling in a stimulating, supportive environment. However, this is just one story.


With the help of donors and friends, CHW can improve the lives of children, women and families who are battling hunger, a devastating disease, or domestic violence. CHW has big needs and caring hearts: we put the money where our heart is.

ABOUT CANADIAN HADASSAH-WIZO (CHW) Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) is Canada's leading Jewish women's philanthropic organization. Founded in 1917, CHW is non-political, volunteer driven and funds a multitude of programs and projects for Children, Healthcare, and Women in Israel and Canada.
