Investing to Eradicate

HIV and Bring About an

AIDS-Free Generation

We were so impressed on our trip to Malawi last year that we decided to step-up our support for Dignitas. The commitment and excellence of the staff on the ground at all levels has saved countless thousands of lives. Dignitas continues to be in the forefront of research and medical intervention in the battle to eradicate HIV/AIDS.

– Al Pace & Kristin Morch – The Pace Family Foundation

Albert Pace and Kristin Morch established the Pace Family Foundation in 2007. The Foundation has contributed to improving health care in Ontario through support of the Toronto Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation, the Hospital for Sick Children, and the North Bay General Hospital, along with many other community causes and local charities. The Pace Family Foundation also supports health care and water projects throughout Rwanda, and in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Niger, Kenya and Malawi. Since 2010 The Pace Family Foundation has generously supported Dignitas’ lifesaving medical and research programs helping to build resilient and healthy communities. Encouraged by the results Dignitas was achieving on the ground, Al and Kristin traveled to Zomba, Malawi in 2017 to see the impact of their support first-hand. They visited Dignitas-supported health facilities and met with a number of clients and health care workers. Inspired by the impact they saw in Zomba, Al and Kristin made their largest gift to Dignitas to date to strengthen Dignitas’ efforts to find sustainable solutions to global health challenges.

Through the power of the ripple effect, support from The Pace Family Foundation will not only help Dignitas to stay the course in the important fight against HIV in Malawi, but also to transform the quality of care available to marginalized people and underserved communities around the world.
