Our spirited friend and colleague, Angelo Lam, passed away in April 2018. Angelo is remembered by HELP faculty and staff for his generous and kind nature, optimistic spirit and commitment to building a better world for children. He was a leader in advocating for children’s rights and a catalyst for community development in the Tri-Cities region for many years.
Angelo was a champion of the MDI since the early days of the project. His work contributed to an increased awareness of the importance of middle childhood in BC, and demonstrated the value of using MDI data to promote dialogue, connect people across communities and focus investments on children and families.
HELP will continue to honour Angelo’s work by building on his approaches of collaboration and inclusivity and sharing the impacts of his lasting work in BC communities. See below to learn more about Angelo’s important work.
