Van Kam Freightways Supports Women’s Health, Donates to BCWHF

March 1, 2024

Van Kam Freightways is proud to announce our recent donation to the BC Women’s Health Foundation (BCWHF), marking another significant step in our commitment to supporting women’s health across British Columbia. This contribution underlines our dedication to fostering community well-being and supporting organizations that make a real difference in people’s lives.

Championing Women’s Health

The BC Women’s Health Foundation stands as BC’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the full spectrum of women’s health. Their efforts ensure women have equitable access to the highest quality healthcare when, where, and how they need it. From investing in equipment and programs at BC Women’s Hospital & Health Centre to funding research and innovation at the Women’s Health Research Institute (WHRI), BCWHF’s work is transformative. They facilitate education and awareness, helping women understand their unique health needs, and advocate for transformational investment in equitable healthcare and research.

A Heartfelt Contribution

Our donation to BCWHF is driven by a shared belief in the power of community support and the importance of healthcare equity. “Supporting BCWHF aligns perfectly with our values at Van Kam, where we believe in giving back to the communities we serve,” says Lenore Henry, Van Kam Freightways Co-Director, Charities & Donations. This donation aims to contribute to the ongoing efforts of BCWHF in making women’s health a priority, ensuring that women’s unique health needs receive the attention and resources they deserve.

Illuminations: A Night to Remember

Looking ahead, BCWHF’s annual gala event, Illuminations, promises to be an evening of celebration and support for women’s health research. Scheduled for March 1, the gala is a key fundraising event that highlights the crucial work of BCWHF and offers a platform for further community engagement and support. Van Kam is excited about the impact this event will have on advancing women’s health research and innovation.

Forward Together

As we reflect on our donation and the upcoming Illuminations gala, it’s clear that our partnership with BCWHF is just the beginning. “We are committed to continuing our support for organizations like BCWHF that make a significant impact on healthcare and research,” says Lenore. Through donations, participation in events like Illuminations, and ongoing community engagement, Van Kam looks forward to contributing to a healthier future for all women in BC.
