Chief David has requested help for his community to support their immediate needs to combat COVID
There are approximately 600 people with COVID from a population of about 1300.
People are isolated and can’t leave their home
They are struggling with a lack of medication and hygiene supplies
There is limited medical assistance in the remote community in Northern Ontario
The northern store is also depleted with groceries and other supplies
It’s an extremely stressful situation with the number of people sick and living in close quarters
We are shipping personal hygiene and medical supplies including cold and flu medications like Tylenol and Advil in the next few days and will expect further supplies needed in the near term.
There are significant needs not only in the short term but long term to build up the community.
True North Aboriginal Partnership (TNAP.CA) has been supporting the community for the past 20 years and will continue to support them through these challenging times. We appreciate your support.
