FlightHub has always had a soft spot for charities and organizations that help young children overcome the toughest battles of their lives. With a recent donation of $500, FlightHub hopes to continue giving back to charities like Opération Enfant Soleil.
About: Opération Enfant Soleil is a non-profit organization that raises funds to develop high-quality paediatrics and to contribute to social health projects for all the children in Quebec. Opération Enfant Soleil was founded in 1988 by the Centre hospitalier de l’Université Laval.
The Telethon was so successful in its very first year that the CHU Sainte-Justine and the Montreal Children’s Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre joined Opération Enfant Soleil the following year.
The money raised was first divided between Quebec’s three specialized paediatric hospitals. It was subsequently decided that 10% of the proceeds should be devoted to the paediatric needs of regional hospitals.
Since 1988, more than $190 million has been given to major paediatric centres, regional hospitals and organizations across Quebec.
