The Highway to Healing Support Society (H2H) was formed in 2013 as a community project of the Rotary Club of Oliver, British Columbia.
Our mission is simple: To compassionately assist families in our community who have a child requiring medical care that is not available locally.
In the years leading up to the formation of H2H, several local families had found themselves in this situation through serious illness or injury. The community has been very supportive: providing direct financial support, donating at fundraisers, or helping the affected families directly. The introduction of our Society to the community was held on November 21st, 2013.
$35,000 of financial assistance has been provided to nearly 20 families on over 50 occasions since H2H’s formation.
The community support and encouragement has been tremendous with many donations from individuals and organizations. H2H is a registered charity and as such can provide tax receipts to individuals for donations. It is a lean organization, with low administration costs. The directors of the society take no form of compensation and are dedicated and motivated to help.
If you know a family who lives in the Town of Oliver, Osoyoos, or OK Falls with a child requiring medical treatment outside the area, we may be able to help. Please contact us.
Our current board of directors: Tanya Martin (Treasurer), Riley Martin, Gail Barriskill (President), Alesha Grimard, Tracy MacFadden, Russell Work, Ernie Dumais (Vice President)
