Global Kindness foundation (GKF) was founded in 2007 by Dr. Hasnain Dewji and his wife Fatemah Dewji from Vancouver, B.C. Canada. They have always had a passion for serving people, and in the past had volunteered their time through various other charities including Kindness in Action.
Through this work, they identified that many impoverished regions were not serviced due to the difficult conditions or lack of desire of volunteers to go and thus, the Global Kindness Foundation was born. Its early missions were to Najaf, Iraq and Kargil, India. Over time GKF has had missions to Haiti, Tanzania (5), Kenya (2), Peru (2), Cambodia, India (2), and Iraq (15). It has branched out from dental and now has medical, optical and audiology. In 2018, our annual Iraq mission had over 70 volunteers with 14 dentists, 3 physicians, and an optical team of 3. Over 1700 children were provided with care. GKF has also set up a permanent dental clinic in Lucknow, India in the Unity School to serve impoverished students.
With your help, the future only holds more smiles worldwide.
