Ongoing Project

Friends of the North Misiway has been providing supplies for the past three years. Our intent is to continue assisting with the needs as requested from Moose Factory. We send hockey equipment, clothes, food and much more as part of the community cupboard that was sent in August.

This request was received from the Deputy Chief Earl Cheechoo and he or his delegate will ensure the equitable distribution of hockey gear from the container. Food is very expensive in the north and Christina Faries, with her team from the Health Unit deliver food to those with empty cupboards which includes elders as well as those with children. This team would continue to distribute the food within the container.
Education helps to break the circle of poverty. However, it is difficult for the child when they don’t have what is needed. Back packs filled with school supplies would give the student equal status when entering school. Rachel Burrows, a teacher is keen to distribute the supplies they will receive.

Norma McComb is the activator who works at the complex and works closely with the Deputy Chief. Norma ensures all the involved players are informed and have the opportunity for input to ensure the project meets the needs of the community.

Plans for the ongoing use of the container include storage for bulk food, especially important during the months when the river is freezing/thawing. It will also serve as a distribution centre emergency response supplies for families who experience a fire in their home that destroys their belongings.

Moose Factory: Population 2,500: A vision of befriending a community in the north six years ago has become an incredible experience. As a snowball gains volume while rolling down a hill, so too does the circle of Friends of the North continue to expand. We have made many friends during our six years of visiting Moose Factory. Much more important is the fact our friends in the north know they have many caring brothers and sisters in the south. We continue to be inspired by the sharing the Cree culture. Our face to face meetings with the program leaders in Moose Factory identified items that would be beneficial to those they serve.
