Transformational Donation to Markham Stouffville Hospital from The Gulshan & Pyarali G. Nanji Family

The Gulshan & Pyarali G. Nanji Family On this Giving Tuesday, I am honoured to announce that the Gulshan and Pyarali G. Nanji Family will be making a transformational, multi-million dollar donation to Markham Stouffville Hospital. In honour and recognition of the gift, Markham Stouffville Hospital will be naming its mental health unit Gulshan and Pyarali G. Nanji Mental Health Services. The Nanji family gift will support the most urgent needs and priorities of the hospital, including mental health services, critical equipment to support emerging needs, and research, innovation and education. The Nanji family understands the importance of investing in mental health support and this transformational gift will continue to elevate the reputation of Markham Stouffville Hospital as a leader in clinical care, as well as help contribute to the de-stigmatization of mental illness.

December 1st is the Global Day of Giving, and I couldn’t think of a better day to celebrate this generous gift by the Nanji family to Markham Stouffville Hospital. Gulshan and Pyarali Nanji have contributed greatly to the success and growth of our city. After fleeing persecution in Uganda in 1972, they along with their four children found refuge in Canada. Their love and appreciation for Canada runs deep and this gift is another example of how they have chosen to give back to the country they love.

Pyarali Nanji founded Belle-Pak Packaging Inc., a local Markham business success story. An industry leader, Belle-Pak has been named one of Canada’s Top 50 Best Managed Companies and is an exceptional corporate citizen and key player in our robust and diverse business community. In addition to receiving many awards and accolades, Mr. Nanji received the highly prestigious Anthony Roman Award in 2017, celebrating his outstanding success in business and community involvement. He has also been named one of Canada’s Top Immigrants and has been honoured by the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce.

On behalf of the City of Markham, I would like to thank the Nanji family for their generosity and commitment to bettering the lives of residents in their support of Markham Stouffville Hospital. The Nanji family is among Markham Stouffville Hospital’s most generous donors and I am continually thankful for their generosity. I have the privilege of knowing the Nanji family and have always been impressed by their commitment to service, exceptional character and generosity of spirit. Please join me in thanking the Gulshan and Pyarali G. Nanji Family for their transformational gift to Markham Stouffville Hospital.
