30,000 First Nations children to receive specially designed masks – Thompson Citizen
by ahnationtalk on February 24, 202138 Views
Thirty-thousand Manitoba First Nations children and teens can expect to receive their specially designed four-layer masks to help fight against COVID-19 in the coming weeks.
This initiative is a joint plan by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) and Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba (CHFM) to keep First Nations youths in Manitoba safer and healthier.
The AMC donated $75,000 to the CHFM for the production of the masks. Two-thirds of the masks will be distributed to Manitoba First Nations while the rest will be supplied by CHFM to Children’s Hospital Emergency Department.
“The masks are a reflection and testament of our good work,” said AMC Grand Chief Arlen Dumas in a virtual press conference. “When we provide these masks and the children see them, they will be reflected in those masks, not only in the image of that mask but in the concept of protection, care and nurture that comes along with being vigilant and protecting one another in light of the pandemic.”
