The Vanisha Foundation is a grassroots non-profit organization supporting the provision of medical services, equipment and treatment for children where medical funding may be limited or unavailable.

The Foundation's purpose is to help children obtain the necessary medical services, equipment and treatment they need. This assistance will provide the families of these children with financial support where medical funding may be limited or unavailable.

In 2010 we expanded our mission and helping hand, to support families with children who are encountering other issues.

Donation of $21,000 to the BC Children's Hospital Foundation

Special Thanks

We would like to acknowledge the many volunteers for their countless hours of continued support over the years. The dedication that they have shown is a testament to the importance that our community places on BC children and their families. With their help we have been able to bring smiles back to the faces of many young children, and for this we are incredibly grateful.
