COVID19 Womens Initiative: British Columbia

COVID-19 Women's Initiative (CWI) is a non-profit, medical student-led organization comprised of students, physicians, and community members across Canada. As a result of the pandemic, many women's shelters and domestic violence hotlines in Vancouver have found themselves overwhelmed, and underfunded.

We are currently collecting monetary donations in order to support local women's shelters. Your donation will be used to cover the increased costs of finding safe alternative housing for women, increased food requirements, massive PPE costs, and other shelter-specific costs.

All money donated will go directly to British Columbia women's shelters to help them meet their needs. 

The following services will be directly supported by your donation
The Bloom Group (Vancouver)
Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter (Vancouver)
YWCA Munroe House (Vancouver)
Helping Spirit Lodge Society (Vancouver)
WISH Drop-In Centre Society (Vancouver)
Atira Women's Resource Society (Vancouver)
Chrysalis Society (Vancouver)
Talitha Koum Society (Coquitlam)
Turning Point Recovery Society (Richmond)

More shelters/organizations may be included as recipients of these donations depending on their needs.
