ANEB launches an appeal a week after the closing of its annual fundraising campaign.
Anorexia and Bulimia Québec (ANEB) appeals to everyone in order to meet its financing requirements for the year 2012-2013. The organization’s last fundraising campaign helped to raise a sum of more than 130 000$. However, ANEB needs an additional 120 000$ to maintain its services which are being used by almost 20 000 Quebecers annually.
Despite this shortfall, the closing of ANEB’s fundraising campaign at the annual benefit event Unis Pour Vaincre which was held on April 17th was very successful. ANEB would like to thank its partners and sponsors such as TVA publications, Scotia Bank, Norton Rose, Torys, Canaccord, Dove Self-Esteem Fund, and numerous partners in goods and services. ANEB would also like to thank all the artists who graciously shared their talent during the fundraising event as well as the public for their great generosity.
Almost half of amount required for ANEB’s operations has been collected. This amount however must be doubled, as failure to do so would force ANEB to make agonizing choices. “This significant decrease in funding compared to previous years has a direct impact on our services and on our beneficiaries. The immediate and free help offered by ANEB saves lives and supports our health system”, says Josée Champagne, Director of ANEB Québec. As the only organization of its kind, ANEB supports individuals throughout Québec who suffer from an eating disorder and their loved ones. Fundamental services such as the emergency line, the support groups and the online help are affected by this situation.
Eating disorders are the mental illnesses that show the highest mortality rate. If untreated, these illnesses may result in death or in its chronicity. ANEB is a front-line service allowing thousands of people who are waiting to be treated by a clinical program to pull through difficult times and even to recover.

Due to the significant reduction in ANEB’s funding, the help and referral line operating hours for the summer are now:
Monday to Friday 8am to 9pm
Saturday and Sunday 12pm to 4pm
This change is effective as of Monday, May 13th, 2013. If you are unable to reach us, do not hesitate to leave us a message and we will call you back as soon as possible.
As soon as the situation allows it, we will increase the help and referral line operating hours.
Despite these circumstances beyond our control, be sure that ANEB Quebec remains there to support you.
Thank you for your understanding.
