The Passing of Denise Shaw

It is with great sadness that we share of the passing of Denise Shaw. Denise was not only a long time supporter of Canadian Aid for Chernobyl, but also the matriarch of a family that has been dedicated to this organization since it’s inception.

Dave and the late Susan Shaw were both founding members and Dave continues to serve as the Director of Humanitarian Aid and Orphan Initiatives. Tom Shaw is a past president who served in the position for 8 years. Denise’ grand-daughter, Riley, is currently serving as a director on the board.

The obitiuary for Denise can be found here:
