Meet Our Heroes

IWK Heroes

When you give to the IWK Foundation, you are helping to change the lives of the women, children and youth who depend on the IWK.

We are honoured to share the stories of courageous patients, amazing caregivers and generous supporters who know the value of the IWK to the Maritime community.

Meet some of the people who bring the IWK to life every day.

One of the IWK’s most longstanding community supporters has been the NSLC. For more than three decades, the employees, partners and customers of the NSLC have made the IWK a priority, donating much needed funds to support the women, children, youth and families that rely on the IWK.
