“I enjoy helping others in need and strongly believe that everyone deserves to have access to education and medicine. This should be the right of every human on the planet, regardless of their race, religion, disability or sex . I want to share the importance of helping others and how it can save many lives.”

Millennium Fellowship Project

MEDLIFE Concordia seeks to mitigate poverty in marginalized rural areas and ensure global sustainability and human rights by providing citizens with the appropriate medicinal, educational, and developmental care. For the duration of the Fellowship, the organization would like to carry out a new initiative which seeks to support children with mental disabilities. They have a set goal of raising $5000 which will be donated to a local organization of our choice such as Bell Let's Talk, a NPO, which is Canada's largest initiative dedicated to de-stigmatize mental health. Throughout the span of these four months, they will carry out at least eight fundraising events, with at least two designated at a larger scale. These events will help measure their progress in successfully reaching our goal.
