For the past 5 years our youth are organizing a charitable run to raise funds for Alberta Children’s Hospital Brain health program. This run is organised to raise awareness for mental health in the community and to help in neuroscience research. In last two years our youth have raised $65,000.00 for Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. Last year our youth were awarded Heroes award for highest fund raised for a small group.
We also participate in City of Calgary annual river pathway clean up. We were a part of more than 20,000 volunteers helping to clean our city in the spring.
We have raised more than 2500 pounds of food in last 5 years for the food-bank as part of Holi fundraiser. We also volunteer at food bank once every two-month to help make food hampers for citizens of Calgary who have fallen on hard times.
In Last 5 years (2015 and 2019) we have raised $25,000.00 to help build two elementary schools in the tribal district of Banaswara in the state of Rajasthan. These schools are educating tribal children in remote and underserve parts of Rajasthan and are helping in breaking the cycle of poverty in these areas.
During the worst pandemic in human history, RANA Calgary and their members have raised ~ $26000 CAD in the month of May-2021 and donated 100 Oxygen Concentrators to Sewa Bharti Organization in the City of Jaipur, India.
