Our founder, Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova
If you lived in Canada during the 1950s, 60s and 70s, you likely remember Dr. Lotta’s famous public service announcements on the radio and television.
Before becoming one of Canada’s leading humanitarians, Dr. Lotta was a young journalist in her home country of Czechoslovakia. The ravages of World War II forced her to flee, first to France, then to Canada.
Guided by her vision of making the world “a better, kinder place,” Dr. Lotta inspired thousands of Canadians to help her seed change around the world.Read about Lotta’s life
