The Canadians for Children at Health Risk

The Canadians for Children at Health Risk is a national community based organization of volunteers, founded in 1995. It is a registered, not-for-profit registered charitable organization committed to helping less fortunate children. Our mission is to prevent disease and mortality in children in the Third World countries, the developing regions of the Balkans and Canadian communities in need, to treat diseases, to research the causes of diseases, and educate the target population in the prevention of diseases.

Presently we are run by a hardworking group of community leaders, health care professionals and volunteers. Our aim is to attract further supporters and friends all across Canada. We are constantly seeking new financial support from business leaders, medical expertise, guidance from health care specialists, and community involvement from local citizens and volunteers. 

CCHR was founded by Pro. Dr. Nikola Georgievski. He was a great humanitarian from Macedonia, born in Skopje on December 1922. During his career he was the Director of the Institute of Health Protection in Macedonia, Minister of Health for Macedonia and Yugoslavia and president of Red Cross. He also worked with United Nations for several years as a World Health Organization Representative for Third World countries. He passed away in Toronto on February 2000.

CCHR continues to contribute scientifically in the well being of children, youth and their families. CCHR is dedicated to improving quality of life, by providing guidance, education and assistance to prevent, treat and research diseases here and abroad. CCHR also organizes referrals and outreach activities, education awareness seminars and prepare parenting and health protection programs.
Throughout the City of Toronto, CCHR plays the vital role in helping those most vulnerable such as new immigrants and other families at risk.

Over the last number of years, CCHR raised funds from a variety of individuals and through a yearly Art Auction.
