This time has offered each of us many new mountains to climb and new rivers to swim through. We are in this together: standing in gratitude with the essential workers and holding loved ones, family members, community members across the globe in our hearts who are COVID-19 positive.
What have you learned during this time? What lessons will you take with you as we reconstruct life ‘beyond normal’? What moments have tickled you? Challenged you?
Called upon your resilience?
We look forward to hearing your stories and playing them back for you with sensitivity, care and love. The more we can share our stories, hear each other's hearts, feel our unity- the more seeds of hope we can plant and the more fruits of interconnection we can cherish.
Words from our Community Partner- Parkdale Food Centre, Ottawa, Canada:
Parkdale Food Centre has always responded to acute needs in our City with a full heart, and we are only able to do so because of your incredible support.
We recognize that COVID 19 and its implications, including potential self-isolation and school closures, affect low-income and vulnerable individuals and families most. Many cannot afford to stock their pantries for a potential quarantine; many face unpaid leave in the event of a prolonged absence from work; children in need will be without important free meals otherwise available through school breakfast programs; and for those with mental health challenges or inadequate housing, self-isolation can have debilitating consequences. As always we will be doing our best to respond to each and every need based on the resources we have available. We appreciate your support during this complex and evolving time. https://parkdalefoodcentre.ca/
