This is three-year old Jordan who had just received his very first wheelchair the day we met him. He was full of joy and all too willing to accept the love and hugs we bestowed on him. It was a beautiful reminder of why we do what we do!
“Make a Difference” are three words that the Daughters of the Nile Foundation are constantly striving for each day ……to “Make a Difference” in the lives of the patients in Shriners Hospitals for Children®. The Daughters of the Nile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public corporation which maintains a permanent endowment fund to benefit the Shriners Hospital system. We are women that care about children. Boys and girls with terrible burns and spinal injuries, and those who have serious orthopedic conditions or cleft lip and palate receive the loving care they just can’t get anywhere else.
Our Foundation exists for one reason and one reason only – to help support the brave young patients at Shriners Hospitals for Children® and their families. Since 1924, the Daughters of the Nile Foundation has given over 56 million dollars to provide children in need of the specialty pediatric care they can only receive at Shriners Hospitals for Children®.
We are Making a Difference and with your support we will continue to support this one-of-a-kind care and touch the lives of children!
Vickie Hill, President of the Daughters of the Nile Foundation
