An international philanthropic organization recently donated $25,000 to a local centre that will create a safe space for children suffering from abuse.

The Frank J. Flaman Foundation made the donation during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Child Advocacy Centre that will be built in Kelowna’s Landmark area.

The centre is a project of the Kelowna Foundation for Hope & Social Innovation. The foundation is looking to raise $3 million for construction, followed by another $3 million to support the centre’s first four years of operations.

“The generosity of organizations like the Flaman Foundation are key to getting this centre built,” Kelowna Foundation executive directorGinny Becker said. “We are so grateful.”

Rocky Amson, the Flaman Foundation’s Chair, said they’re pleased to be a part of the project.
