The purpose of the SBHAM Benevolent Fund is to relieve conditions associated with disability by providing gift cards or vouchers to cover food costs while in hospital for extended stay for up to $100.00, once or twice per year
This fund is available to those who live in Manitoba, have spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and/or are caregivers of those who are affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. The applicant also must be a member of the Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Manitoba.
Applicants are to submit their receipts for appropriate expenses, (such as food and drink) the attached application form and documentation of their hospital stay that includes dates, hospital and doctor. These expenses are to be submitted by the end of the year. The SBHAM board will make a decision on reimbursement based on need and funds available.
