Four Arrows Regional Health Authority (FARHA) will be receiving approximately $100,000 next month to help improve living conditions for First Nations children and youth in the Island Lake region of Manitoba.
The donation comes from the $500,000 IKEA Canada fund to support vulnerable communities across Canada in recovering from the impacts of COVID-19.
The FARHA would not have been able to ensure that First Nations children have a safe place to grow, learn and play, without the help and guidance of Save the Children, an organization committed to helping vulnerable children.
“When the opportunity arose and IKEA reached out to us about their COVID-19 response work, we connected with the FARHA to see what priorities were urgently needed by the children and youth in the community,” said Lewis Archer, Program Manager at Save the Children Canada.
