About the club
The Helping Hands project is designed to show fellow students the unique pressures facing vulnerable populations in the Montreal area. Helping Hands is already partnered with the Native Women’s Shelter, the Chronic Viral Illness Clinic (CVIS, Glen Hospital), CLSC Parc-extension and the multiple other shelters in Montreal. Recently, Helping hands rose to the need of vulnerable women during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our team hosted a relief fundraiser for Women’s shelters in the Montreal Area to respond to increased need due to pandemic confinement. Raised awareness through various platforms and features in the Montreal Gazette and CJAD Radio Show raising over $7,000 for our causeWe organize educational events, where students can learn about the obstacles facing vulnerable populations directly from clinic staff. We also provide women from vulnerable populations with basic necessities in the form of a feminine hygiene kit. We give our kits to women who are newly landed immigrants; homeless and marginally housed; and who live with HIV or other viral illnesses. In a reusable bag, our kit contains: sanitary napkins, tampons, wet wipes, panty liners, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, hand cream, shampoo, deodorant and condoms.
