Red Nose Day in Detroit 2016

For the second year in a row, Children's Health Fund is one of the beneficiaries of Red Nose Day, a nationwide effort to help children in poverty. With the help of Red Nose Day funding, Children’s Health Fund brings medical care to those who need it most. In Detroit, our mobile clinics “Hank” and “Clara” spend their days at schools like Dixon Educational Learning Academy, providing primary medical care and programs that are essential to ensure that kids are healthy and ready to learn.
