On May 9, BABU volunteers Samantha Dunnigan, Laura Betcherman and Kira Bensimon held a hugely successful fundraiser to benefit the International Friendship Hospital’s Nutrition Centre in Toronto. The event, at Screen Lounge, was a smashing success with more than 100 tickets sold, and raised almost $1500. All proceeds will be going directly to support children and families who receive free care at the Nutrition Centre. Samantha, Laura will be in Kathmandu this July, check back for updates on their work in the Nutrition Centre and their adventures in Nepal! Thanks for organizing a great event!


BABU would like to send a HUGE danyaabaad (thank-you in Nepali) to Screen Lounge for hosting the event, and for selling delicious and artfully decorated cupcakes to support this cause. We are so grateful for this great contribution. Check out Screen Lounge, it’s a great place to grab a bite or a drink, and it’s run by great people! Thanks again!
