(Treaty 4 Territory, SK)– The All Nations Healing Hospital (ANHH) is extremely grateful to receive a $1 million donation. The donor family, who wishes to remain anonymous, praised the hospital for the compassion, support and dignity its beloved family member received in those final hours.
Working in partnership with the family and the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation, ANHH plans to use the donation to establish a foundation that will aid in the delivery of services at the All Nations Healing Hospital.
“This gift provides the seed money to start a foundation. The foundation will be named the DEK ANHH FOUNDATION FUND and will continue to serve the citizens of the Qu’Appelle Valley for many years to come. This new foundation is now open to future contributions,” stated the family.
“We are very grateful to the donor and the family for this substantial donation,” said Tribal Chief and ANHH Board Chair Edmund Bellegarde, “We strive to deliver the best health care services we can. This donation is a testament to the exemplary work of the staff and health care providers of the All Nations Healing Hospital.”
Donna Ziegler, Executive Director of the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation says SSCF is focused on supporting and building strong, resilient communities with a culture of sharing, generosity and inclusivity. “We work with donors and charities to address the needs in helping to build a community where people live, work and play,” says Ziegler. “If donors would like to contribute to the Foundation Fund, please contact the SSCF at (306) 751-4756.”
