Helping Canadians

Through our Food Relief campaign in London, Ontario we offered immediate support to people in need.

We helped Meals on Wheels deliver meals to seniors, Mission Services serve meals at their shelters, the London Food Bank feed families in our city and people through 25 other agencies in Ontario.

Back in April, we donated 400 masks to the London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) and, in May, we delivered three 20L pails of hand sanitizer and twelve units of paper towels (6-packs) to Meals on Wheels.

In July, we donated 10,000 masks to the Jane and Finch Community in Toronto, one of the areas where COVID-19 hit the hardest. They were purchased through a Good Neighbors fundraiser with Korean churches. Sea Mission and Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Tom Rakocevic helped facilitate the give away.

Global assistance

We may have wrapped our Food Relief campaign in Canada, but many countries are still struggling to get the situation under control.

Good Neighbors has been distributing masks and hygiene products, installing hand washing stations, and providing treatment and emergency response.

Many countries we work at have weak public health systems. Children and their families in vulnerable communities are facing severe risks since they lack clean water and cannot access basic health services.

We are responding to the crisis in cooperation with local health authorities, governments, the United Nations and international humanitarian societies.

So far, Good Neighbors reached over 4.4 million people in our COVID-19 relief initiatives, including more than 1.8 million children in our field countries.

Heroes from Home

In light of COVID-19, we have had to postpone our Minds in Bloom fundraiser to 2021.

We are helping renovate two classrooms at La Palangana Primary School in Guatemala, in the second edition of our Save a School campaign.

While there have been no Covid cases among students and staff, the community is suffering. We have supported Good Neighbors Guatemala's initiative Heroes from Home, a series of benefit concerts for food supplies, water and masks and they have helped over 2,500 families!

For emotional support, Good Neighbors also offers phone counselling for children and is distributing a kit to help with mental health. It includes a mandala colouring book, clay and board games to help with stress management.

Take good care of one another and keep being such good neighbours.
