Forced from School: EHS Kids-Legal Fund

Forced from School: EHS Kids-Legal Fund
We just posted our online fundraising account!

The Sooke School District #62 (BC) has denied the appeal of three young children with an environmental intolerance, medically known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). EHS is caused by exposure to Wi-Fi (wireless internet) and other devices emitting microwave, radio frequency radiation. Symptoms commonly associated with microwave sickness include headaches, fast heart rate, chest pain, dizziness, nausea, concentration and memory problems, anxiety, sleep disorders, extreme fatigue, tremors, reoccurring infection, impaired immune function, skin rash, facial flushing, abdominal pain, nosebleeds, ringing in the ears, and more.

Since there is currently NO school in Sooke School District that is free of Wi-Fi networks, these children have been forced to leave not only their respective schools but the district as well. The parents have formally brought the issue forward, without success, to every level within the school system. Despite their doctors' written requests for the children to avoid Wi-Fi emissions, their medical circumstances have been consistently ignored and denied by the school district. At this time, the parents are appealing their district's decision to the BC Ministry of Education so that their children will be able to return to school.

An attorney specializing in this field has been engaged to represent the concerned families in this appeal process. The projected cost of legal fees is estimated at $5,000. Your donations will help to fund this important legal challenge.  If accommodation is achieved through this appeal process, it will be a precedent-setting case for other school districts across our province and country. 

We appreciate all donations big and small and thank you for your support!
