Thanks to you

Montreal Oral School for the Deaf

Every year the Foundation gives its financial support to the parent-children Franca Dora Program of the Montreal Oral School for the Deaf. This early intervention program is aimed at babies and toddlers suffering from a hearing loss. By sponsoring this program, the Franca Dora Foundation provides a solid and recurrent financial support to the Montreal Oral School for the Deaf.

Sainte-Justine University Hospital Center

Among other contributions, the Foundation has also helped purchase an oximeter and other equipment specifically attributed to the heart surgery operating room of the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Center. The oximeter is used during heart surgery to help monitor the level of oxygen flowing to the brain.

Fondation Jovia

The foundation financially supports the Fondation Jovia charitable organization. This organization helps improve the well-being of hospitalized children on a professional and regular basis through its program of therapeutic clowns, cleverly mixing laughter with imagination and camaraderie. By sponsoring Isabelle Di Palma, a.k.a. Dr. Ti-Boutte, these programs allow the prescription of several well-deserved dosages of affection.

The Foundation also financially supports many other organizations, including the Learning Disabilities Association of Quebec, the Montreal Sacré-Cœur Hospital Foundation, A World of Dreams, and the Aide à la Jeunesse Foundation.

East Foundation

The Franca Dora Foundation offered financial support to the East Foundation. The sum offered will be used to respond to the needs of intellectually-disabled children. The contribution allows the East Foundation to bring a little comfort to the hearts of families touched by the illness.

Centre de répit Philou (Respite Care Centre)

The Franca Dora Foundation supports the Centre de répit Philou. The Centre de répit Philou is a private non-profit charitable organization that welcomes physically-handicapped children between the ages of 0 and 12 years old for a period of two days to three weeks at a time. This allows parents to reenergize, while offering the children a warm and stimulating environment.

The Montreal Children’s Hospital

The Franca Dora Foundation helped contribute towards the purchase of a ventriculoscopy system for The Montreal Children’s Hospital. Using highly sophisticated technology, this neurosurgical innovation allows a camera to be introduced inside a child’s brain to proceed with the removal of tumors.

Because of the Foundation, The Montreal Children’s Hospital has also been able to acquire magnetic resonance imaging equipment. This equipment allows neurosurgeons to achieve higher image quality during surgery, hence considerably reducing the risk of harming healthy regions of the brain.
