Help us donate money to support frontline workers

As the COVID-19 pandemic grows worse in Canada, the need for equipment such as PPEs and ventilators have grown, and so have hospitals’ need for money. Our organization has reached out to Unity Health, a network of three hospitals in Ontario dealing with a large number of COVID-19 cases, and we'll be donating the money we raise to them to combat the current pandemic. As Unity Health works to promote medical equity as well as fostering care for all, we strongly believe our donations will help provide the inclusive and compassionate medical care that the world currently needs. We will be accepting donations until May 18th, 2020. 


Who are we?
World In Focus is a youth-run non-profit organization dedicated to raising both funds and awareness about the importance of vision care. Founded in 2016, we are composed of high school students throughout the GTA who work together in creating communal and global awareness on this issue. Since our founding, World in Focus has organized over 20 education events which have successfully engaged over 40 countries and fundraised over $8000 in donations. Thus, we were able to sponsor twenty-four cataract surgeries in children living in impoverished countries such as Nepal and Ethiopia in partnership with the Himalayan Cataract Project. 

Given our current circumstances, World In Focus is passionate about doing our part to assist with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has impacted us all; our team at World In Focus seeks to work towards universal health care as well as global health initiatives. While this cause is a bit out of our normal area of action, we believe that it’s important to step up in trying times to help those that need it. 


What are we doing? 
Through this GoFundMe and our social media platforms, we are raising money to donate to Unity Health. We also aim to raise awareness about the importance of staying home in these trying times, especially amongst the youth, through our “Who are you social distancing for?” social media campaign. For every Instagram story a person posts explaining why they are social distancing that World In Focus (@worldinfocuscanada) is tagged in, we will donate $2 to Unity Health, matching donations up to $1000. 


Where will the donated money go?
All funds raised from this GoFundMe will be donated to Unity Health Toronto.
