Avita Gives Back
At Avita we believe that it’s important to make a positive difference, both in our community and abroad. Avita has chosen to be a supporter of two international organizations: Run for Water and Ratanak International. We also participate in maternity and blanket collection to help the Lions Gate Maternity Ward.
Run for Water
Run for Water is an Abbotsford based organization which works to provide clean water wells in Africa. They also work jointly on projects with Imagine Canada to establish schools, clean water supplies, and basic infrastructure to poor African communities. If you are interested in learning more about Run for Water, please visit www.runforwater.ca.
Ratanak International is an organization founded by former RCMP officer Brian McConaghy. It is a Christian organization that is involved in helping to free exploited Cambodian children who are victims of human trafficking. They are also actively involved in education (with the intention of prevention of human trafficking), by jointly working with both government and local police agencies. To learn more about Ratanak, please visit www.ratanak.org.
Maternity & Blanket Collection
The purpose of this program is to help Lions Gate Maternity ward, and specifically the Neonatal intensive care unit. We have heard from the nurses that care for these tiny babies that there is a need. The premies are dressed as soon as their health allows, and the ward needs sleepers for premies up to 10lbs, as well as receiving blankets (used or new).
Avita would like to help collect blankets and sleepers for this worthy cause. We would like to be a drop off site for any donations for these babies. Once the blankets are collected the Avita staff will transport them to the Neonatal unit.
If anyone can help by dropping off blankets or sleepers, please contact us today.
