The Global Kindness Foundation was founded in 2007 by Dr. Hasnain Dewji and his wife Fatemah Dewji from Vancouver, British Columbia. They have always had a passion for serving people and in the past have volunteered their time through various other charities and initiatives 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 and thus the Global Kindness Foundation was born. Its early missions were to Najaf, Iraq and Kargil, India. Over time Global Kindness Foundation has visited Carrefour, Haiti, Zanzibar, Tanzania, Calloa, Peru and revisited various cities in Iraq. In 2010 Global Kindness was granted official charity status and has continued missions every year since.
Over the years and the various missions, Global Kindness Foundation realized there was just as much need in other medical speciality areas. As a result, when possible each mission also provides medical, optical and audiology clinics. Global Kindness Foundation has set up a permanent dental clinic in Lucknow, India in the Unity School to serve impoverished students.
