On June 6, 2024 Health Partners International Canada (HPIC) bestowed upon the Rotary Club of Picton the award of Community Leader of the Year at their 2024 President's Table Gala and Award Ceremony. The Club was recognized for their on-going support for HPIC, but in particular their fundraising events to support HPIC and other projects in Ukraine.
HPIC is the only Canadian charity that holds a Canada Health Establishment License that allows them to hold and ship pharmaceuticals. Working with leading companies to obtain free of low cost medical supplies, HPOV handles the warehousing and shiment to needy sites around the world. This enables a 10-fold benefit for each dollar donated to the values of medical supplies on the ground.
Rotary Club of Picton President Don Leslie graciously accepted the award and commended HPIC on the outstanding support they provide to people in need suffering through disasters or conflicts.
