"DO YOU KNOW WHAT A.S.H.A.C. REPRESENTS?"
As members of Aladdin Shriners we all know our greatest humanitarian effort as
Shriners is our support of Shriners Hospitals for Children. We are indeed proud
of the 22 hospitals in North America that care for children with orthopedic
problems and those that have been seriously burned, but we also care for and
treat cleft lip and pallet deficiencies and spinal cord injuries and defects as
However, Aladdin Shriners have gone above and beyond in its humanitarian quest
to provide better lives for children. For the past 70 years Aladdin has been
treating children locally with those same problems right here in central Ohio
through a very special organization called The Aladdin Shriners Hospital
Association for Children, (A.S.H.A.C.) This association was established to
support Shriners Hospitals for Children throughout the world but to also care
for children in central Ohio - all the while spreading the message of the
benevolence of Shriners.
This organization does not in any way compete with the 22 Shrine Hospitals -
but complements their endeavors. A.S.H.A.C. in collaboration with Shriners
International and Shriners Hospitals for Children maintains an operating fund
from which the interest and dividends from this fund provide the money to pay
for care and treatment of children in Aladdin’s jurisdiction suffering from
burn injuries, orthopedic problems, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and
pallet deficiencies in addition to providing wheelchairs, prosthetics and
patient care support.
At the end of each year after all the bills are paid A.S.H.A.C. takes the
remaining amount of money received from interest, dividends, wills, bequests
and outright donations in excess of the amount it is permitted to maintain in
the fund and disperses the money as follows: a minimum of one half is returned
to Shriners Hospitals for Children (by dividing the amount into thirds and
giving these thirds equally to the Lexington, Cincinnati and Erie Shrine
Hospitals). The remaining one half is then divided up and given to health
care institutions throughout Aladdin’s jurisdiction upon written request to
and approval from the trustees of A.S.H.A.C. that support patient care within
the guidelines set forth by the trustees of A.S.H.A.C. and Shriners Hospitals
The ability of Aladdin Shriners to be able to care for and treat children
within our own jurisdiction is unique and a source of pride for all Aladdin
Shriners without diminishing our efforts on behalf of Shriners Hospitals for
So, my fellow Nobles give yourselves a hearty pat on the back, you deserve it.
Now - are Aladdin Shriners special? You bet.
