Congratulations to our own Dr. Andrew Macnab, lead Pediatrician with KidCareCanada Society. Andrew has been honoured with the 2012 Rose award from Rose Charities International for outstanding humanitarian work for African children through the Brighter Smiles Africa program and African Hearts project.

“For unstinting commitment to care for the homeless and disenfranchised youth of Uganda, his love of helping others by passing on his own knowledge, and his continual efforts to contribute what he can where he can to a world of almost endless need.”
