Providing practical humanitarian support to northern Canadian communities
INDIGENOUS MEDICAL ALLIANCE REPORT
On August 25th, 2018, with the help of Capital Movers Kingston and Glenn Warner, the Indigenous Medical Alliance was able to collect over 1.5 20 foot containers worth of medical supplies and equipment! Items collected included various walkers, wheelchairs, canes, bathroom equipment, wound care supplies as well as two hospital beds! A big thank you goes out to the Independent Order of the Oddfellows and the Rebekahs of Harrowsmith who donated a large trailer full and truck full of various medical supplies and equipment! Thank you to everyone that donated supplies!
We need your help to raise enough money to move the equipment to the Keewaytinook Okimakanak communities as well as arrange a trip to meet several band councils as we form relationships. Please stay tuned for more fundraisers and ways that you can help the communities through the health fund of True North Aid.
