Canadians Reaching Out to the World’s Children Foundation (CARO) is a 100% VOLUNTEER RUN Medicine Hat, Alberta based charitable organization dedicated to working with communities around the world, and organizations in Medicine Hat, to improve the lives of disadvantaged and/or vulnerable children.

We are a group of dedicated volunteers that raise money every year to support the work of our AMAZING project partners in Burkina Faso, Romania and here at home in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Money raised here in Canada goes to support projects such as the Teega Wende Orphanage in Burkina Faso, the Children’s State Orphanage Leaganul de Copii in Medias, Romania, breakfast/lunch programs at local schools in Medicine Hat, Alberta and assistance for newly arrived refugee families in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

As a donor you can be assured that the majority of funds we raise every year is dedicated to directly supporting disadvantaged children!  In addition, we are honored to present the Tri-Annual Allan Hunt Memorial Speaker Series each year to raise awareness in Medicine Hat on children’s rights and global awareness – a free speaker series open to all!  In 2013 the volunteer speaker was Dr. Michael Duggan. Dr. Duggan’s talk on November 22, 2013 “The Courage of Children” was hosted at the Medicine Hat College Cultural Centre Black Box Theatre at 7 PM.
