Worried about COVID-19? Call an Elder

Being isolated and distanced during the pandemic can cause concern, fear and even boredom.

Sensing people need someone to talk to, the Native Women’s Association of Canada is here to help.

It has established a phone line to connect with Elders who can put worries in perspective.
