We’re Proud to Support Community Healthcare

The MHDHF is committed to making a positive and long-lasting impact on the health of our community. That’s why every dollar donated to our organization is used to improve the quality of care we can provide in our facilities – and by helping us reach our fundraising goals, you can see the difference you have made in the lives of your family, friends, and neighbours.

Your dollars might become a new bed for a sick grandfather, a diagnostic machine for an ill mother, or medical training that brings a child home from the hospital for good. Whatever your donation does, we are proud to put it back into the community, where it belongs.

Our Covid Experience: “Who could have written this script?”

Sitting down with Donna, Neil, and Donna’s sister Karen was a true miracle in itself. They were clearly still processing their Covid-19 journey, both shocked and grateful to have survived this surprisingly deadly virus. Unfortunately, Neil’s father did not survive, and the family are still grieving his loss. Our condolences go out to their families….
