Canada’s Indigenous peoples, who once possessed a rich and diverse set of healing practices, today face some of the poorest health outcomes in Canada, with higher than national average rates of infant mortality, type-II diabetes, and malnutrition. Health is not only freedom from illness and injury but also a key component in alleviating poverty. For many remote Indigenous communities in Canada, access to quality health care is far below the national standard. True North Aid is committed to serving and supporting health care initiatives that promote a healthy body, mind and spirit. Currently, True North Aid is supporting health initiatives that provide menstrual and hygiene supplies through organizations like Moon Time Sisters.
Any funds that exceed our goal for this campaign will go towards other LiveWell programs.
