Evelyn Farha’s profile
October 31, 2017
Evelyn Farha has served as the Honourary President of the Farha Foundation for 23 years. She worked tirelessly to carry out the mission of her late son, the Farha Foundation founder Ron Farha, by helping Quebecers with HIV/AIDS to obtain support and care. Her goal was to see that no other family suffers the same loss as her by educating the community that the disease is preventable.
Evelyn has received numerous accolades for her inspiring efforts. In 2013, she was the recipient of the Médaille de l’Assemblée nationale. In 2002, the Governor General presented her with the Golden Jubilee Medal. During that same year, she was also recognized by the Canadian-Lebanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry, who presented her with the Cedar & Maple Award in the category of Personality of the Year. In 2000, the Governor General’s office bestowed Evelyn with the Caring Canadian Award.
In merging with the Farha Foundation, the Fqsida takes up the challenge and hopes to achieve the goal set by Evelyn.
