The Charlotte Daniel Fund

Background

Following the death of Charlotte (Char) Carroll Daniel in 2008, her family wished to honor her commitment to social justice and maternal and child health. They did so by creating the Charlotte Daniel Fund and an international award, the Charlotte Daniel "Champions of Change" Award at World Connect, which is given on an annual basis to a hospital, health center or community organization demonstrating the strongest commitment to improving the health and well-being of mothers and children.

"We wanted to choose a memorial that reflected her giving nature, her humanitarianism and her concern for social justice," father and sons agree. "And we wanted to give her young grandchildren and those to come a way of relating to her and loving her by understanding who she was."

We wanted to choose a memorial that reflected her giving nature, her humanitarianism and her concern for social justice.
