World Partnership Walk:
Healthier Moms Means
Impact of AKDN Projects:
Between 1990 and 2010 the number of children dying before the age of 5 was cut in half and maternal mortality dropped by 50%. However many women and children still do not have access to the information and care they need to be healthy. This is where we need your help! Health is a key factor in breaking the cycle of poverty. Healthy moms can raise healthy children, who in turn grow up to contribute to and lead their communities. Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2TsT0tEPcg
The Government of Canada recently signed a $100 million partnership with the Aga Khan Development Network to tackle health challenges and improve the quality of life of people in Asia and Africa. The Government will contribute $75 million and the remaining $25 million will come from Canadians participating in the World Partnership Walk (WPW) and other World Partnership events (ie: golf tournament) put on by the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC).

During the month of May, for every donation towards the World Partnership Walk, Vancouver’s Backs in Action patients will receive a discount on their treatment equal to half of their donation! For example a $50 donation will entitle you to $25 off of your treatment, and you will also receive a tax receipt for your charitable donation. Essentially a win-win, lets make a difference together to help alleviate global poverty!
