The Honda Canada Foundation is the newest national partner of the David Foster Foundation, helping to enhance their decades-long support of Canadian families with children undergoing pediatric organ transplants.
The three-year, $150,000 partnership with the Honda Canada Foundation will provide support for families who require financial assistance to cover their non-medical expenses during the transplant journey.
Financial support of non-medical expenses ranges from mortgage, rent, and car payments to airline tickets, groceries, parking, and gas.
Often, families have to travel away from home and set up temporary housing close to one of the pediatric transplant hospitals across Canada.
Since its inception 30 years ago, the David Foster Foundation has worked with more than 1,000 families across Canada, helping to support their non-medical expenses.
The financial commitment to families averages to $10,000 throughout their transplant journey, which includes pre and post-transplant hospital visits and check-ups.
The Honda Canada Foundation joins other David Foster Foundation national partners including TELUS, WestJet, AMJ Campbell, Aird & Berlis, LLP, and Schnitzer.
