World Day of Peacekeepers and War Amps

World Day of Peacekeepers and War Amps

Melodie Poliquin, a child amputee from Beauport, recently participated for the second time, in the World Day of Peacekeepers.

This served as a tribute for the people who have served or are currently serving on peacekeeping operations all around the world.

This eight-year old girl was very enthusiastic during the candle ceremony in Quebec City.

Her right hand as well as a part of both her feet was amputated for medical reasons.

Melodie subscribed to the Program for amputated children Les Vainqueurs from the War Amps Association, which provides its members with financial assistance to purchase artificial limbs, moral support, and the possibility to take part in various seminars.

During the ceremony, attended by Canadian Forces members as well as many VIP guests, Melodie placed a candle at the Monument of Valour at George-V. place.

She was present as a representative of the heritage Operation, a way to promote and preserve Canada’s military heritage.
