Half Million for Victorian Order
A special appeal for funds is being made by her royal highness the Duchess of Connaught to augment the fund raised by Lady Minto in 1902 for the Victorian Order of Nurses.
The need for nurses and for cottage hospitals, all over Canada is a very urgent one, and with the ever-increasing growth of the country the demands for nurses get more pressing every day. The Victorian Order has been doing all that was possible with the means at its disposal and the increase in their work is really remarkable. In 1898, the first year, there were 16 nurses, 673 patients and 38,080 visits were paid. In 1911 there were 191 nurses, 19,922 patients, and 152,373 visits were paid.
These facts alone point to how great the need is and it is to enable this work to be further developed and its scope enlarged that H. R. H. has decided to make this appeal to all the people of Canada. It is hoped to raise $500,000, the interest from which sum carefully invested would enable the order to extend its good work to the small towns and scattered districts, where at present the sick and suffering are often entirely uncared for.
