Taste the World, a wine tasting, is a volunteer effort of Vancouver and Calgary based Canadian Friends of Angkor Hospital for Children and Canadian Friends of Medical Action Myanmar in partnership with the Import Vintners & Spirits Association of B.C. The night will offer over 300 wine labels for tasting, a silent auction and mini Asian market.
The objectives of Taste the World are:
- Raise awareness of the global child… every child has the right to basic healthcare.
- The cost is so little to help a child in Cambodia and Myanmar to cover child malnutrition, malaria, TB and HIV. Full treatment at Angkor Hospital costs $28 per child. Medical Action treats children with malaria for a mere $5.00 per child.
- The net proceeds from the event will be used for both operating and capital expenditures.
