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.
