BAPS Charities showed their support for the incredible work taking place at the William Osler Health System Foundation by making a donation to complete its commitment of $100,000.
Dr. Naveed Mohammad, President and CEO of the William Osler Health System, sent a special message of appreciation saying, “BAPS Charities Canada has an incredible legacy of support and your commitment to many causes is seen first hand every day in the communities in which we live and work. Your generosity has also touched the hearts and minds of our health care workers. In our community, a comprehensive cancer care centre is a priority. However, we can’t achieve this vision alone. Enhancing the care we provide to our patients depends on our friends and partners, such as BAPS, and our goal is that with your help, this centre will become a reality. Thank you on behalf of Osler.”
