WHO WE HELP
- Families of children with life threatening or chronic illness
- Children of parents with life threatening illness
- Families from all across Canada
We know that the illness impacts not just the person who is sick, but their entire family. Chai Lifeline Canada services include support for siblings, parents and children.
For 15 years, Chai Lifeline Canada has given thousands of families the concrete services and emotional support
that enables patients, siblings, and parents to find hope and joy in their lives.
Our programs and services take care of everything from the mundane, like help getting to doctors’ appointments and hot meals when children are hospitalized,
to the extraordinary, like medically supervised overnight camps that give children confidence, courage, and life skills they need to fight dreaded illnesses.
It is our people – the trained, credentialed professionals and hundreds of dedicated volunteers – who make the real difference.
Their warmth and compassion, knowledge and empathy transforms programs into life-changing events.
They are the catalysts that help our children and families say,
“Chai Lifeline did more than help us cope with our child’s illness.
They gave us the tools to put pediatric illness in its place.”
