Protecting Children Around The World


VANCOUVER – Child Haven International is an organization dedicated to the wellbeing of children and women in the developing world. It is a non-political, non-profit and non-government organization established in 1985 by Bonnie and Fred Cappuccino, two Canadians who have a long history of improving the lives of women and children throughout the world, and Dr. Nat Shah of Cornwall, Ontario.

Recently, Meadowridge school students made fundraising for Child Haven a school project and came up with “Pennies per Page” fundraiser.  Each child voluntarily collected pledges for each page of reading they did during the one week period.  Their goal was to collect at least $500 which would cover provisions for one of the Child Haven Homes in India.  After a week of Reading, thanks to all the support of Meadowridge students, families and Staff, they had raised over $2200 for Child Haven! You can help too!
