Sometimes referred to as “Father Teresa.”

Dr. Hodes is an orthodox Jewish doctor, working with the Mother Teresa’s Catholic Missionaries of Charity, treating people of all religions and ethnicities suffering from heart disease, cancer, scoliosis and tuberculosis of the spine.
A multi-cultural event; Bring Back Hope represents a diverse community of British Columbia’s most engaged citizens working together to reach out to join Dr. Hodes’ mission of universal good.
The event was championed by Vancouver philanthropists Gary and Nanci Segal in partnership with the UBC Faculty of Medicine. Proceeds from the evening are directed to Dr. Hodes’ life-saving mission in Ethiopia and the UBC Branch for International Surgery. This was a most uplifting evening bringing together people of all faiths in support of a rare individual and his tireless humanitarian work.
