Providence Healthcare Foundation announces exciting partnership with One Free World International

May 13, 2020

Providence Healthcare Foundation is pleased to announce that it is the newest local partner of international non-profit organization, One Free World International (OFWI).

OFWI stands up for those who are persecuted as a result of their faith. Their goal is to increase awareness of the plight of those who are forced to endure hardship for their beliefs. Based in Toronto, OFWI promotes and protects the rights of religious minorities around the world while building tolerance and understanding for diverse religious beliefs.

While their work is international in scope, OFWI wants to make a local difference for those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are thrilled that OFWI has decided to partner with us at Providence Healthcare, and we are pleased to share that 30% of their donations over the next three months will support Providence Healthcare Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.

“[This] will help local hospitals and long-term care homes in our community who are struggling with COVID-19. It will also have impact around the world,” said Founder of OFWI, Majed El-Shafie in a recent email to supporters.

The support of OFWI will immediately go towards Providence’s areas of greatest need related to COVID-19, including:

  • A Portable X-Ray Machine to provide diagnostics for patients with COVID-19.
  • Vital Signs Machines to monitor the health of our most vulnerable patients
  • Oxygen Concentrators to provide oxygen support to patients in dire need.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Providence would like to thank Majed El-Shafie, One Free World International, and all of its supporters for this incredible partnership and supporting Providence Healthcare Foundation, locally during this crisis. It’s truly difference-making.
