Nanaimo Onsite Safe Consumption
$1,075 of $5,000 goal
The number of overdose-related deaths in Nanaimo is terrifying. While the death count rose, a group of concerned citizens rallied to establish the Onsite Safe Consumption site in the parking lot of Nanaimo City Hall.
The group provides a supervised area for drug users to consume drugs in a supervised environment with people ready to respond with Naloxone and lifesaving techniques.
Funds are needed immediately for several purposes:
Generator Fuel and maintenance
Nutritional food for visitors
These funds will be helping those on the frontlines prevent overdose-related deaths. If funds are not available we are also looking for quality warm clothing, food to distribute and qualified volunteers.
All the best,
Onsite Safe Consumption Nanaimo
