Hygiene Kit delivery to Women's Centre Calgary
We are now 4 months into the pandemic in Canada and everyone is still adjusting to the "new normal".
GlobalMedic staff and volunteers have been working non-stop packing aid and working with local agencies to distribute this aid to families who have been affected by the pandemic.
To date, we have distributed over 35,000 Hygiene Kits to community organizations, almost 26,000 Thank You Kits to frontline workers and over 7,000 COVID-19 Safety kits to the general public that include soap and reusable face masks. Proper hygiene is the first line of defence against this virus.
Our Emergency Food Program has been especially in demand as families now find themselves in financial difficulty and the food bank system faces a strain due to increased need. Our volunteers have been working 7 days a week repackaging bulk staple items like rice and lentils into 500g bags which are then distributed to food banks all over the GTA. We have distributed over 150,000 kg to date of dried food staples.
Our Feed the Six program is focussed on serving the people outside of the food bank system, who may have difficulty accessing it. Our dried food staples, along with other available items, are packed into hampers and then delivered through contactless drop-offs or drive through pickups. We have delivered 10,000 of these hampers to date.
It seems clear that this pandemic will continue to affect families for the foreseeable future. Our team will continue to get aid to those most vulnerable. Please consider a donation if you are able.
