"With the support of this gift from the Rotary Club of Kelowna, we have been able to install two colourful murals on the walls of our medical exam rooms, insert privacy doors, hang thoughtful artwork and purchase child-centric furniture and plants as finishing touches throughout our facility to make it as comforting, safe and child-friendly as possible. Additionally, Rotary Club of Kelowna has funded a much needed critical piece of case management software,” she said in the news release.

The Child Advocacy Centre relies on the support of the community. For more information on the centre and how you can donate, visit its website
