Médecins Sans Frontières
Support of global Maternal Healthcare programming, giving women’s healthcare the attention it deserves, ensuring women and girls living in challenging environments have access to medical care. Countless communities across Afghanistan, DRC, Central America, and around the globe, women, mothers and their children are now able to access life-saving medical care in MSF facilities thanks in part to the funding provided by Leacross Foundation. Even more so today, as the COVID-19 pandemic is causing the disruption in healthcare services around the world – including the diminishment of critical women’s health services – our partnership is critical to ensure that provision of these essential medical services continue.
The Leacross Foundation has been providing support to MIRA for over 15 years for its programs that offer free guide dogs, and service dogs to people living with visual impairments, and physical disabilities and to youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We are pleased to support Mira’s activities and services, based on the concept of body equality, and making what is accessible to all, be accessible to people with disabilities.
Ottawa Food Bank
The last few years have been precarious for maintaining proper nutrition- with the global pandemic, lost jobs, and food insecurity, the percentage of families needing good healthy products has skyrocketed in the Greater Ottawa Region. As such, the Leacross Foundation visited some of the farms delivering amazing products to those who needed it. We are grateful to the Ottawa Food Bank for saving peoples’ lives by providing groceries and maintaining great relationships in numerous communities.
The Pepper Pod
There aren’t enough words to describe Sandra Perron, the Executive Director of the Pepper Pod. As a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, she has created a safe and nurturing space for women veterans and current officers. Her awareness of the traumas experienced by women in the military has led her to offer supportive workshops that allow women to share issues and move forward in speaking out and changing the culture of misogyny. We are pleased to support the Pepper Pod in these tense times.
