To deal with the COVID-19 outbreak and address the needs of Vancouver’s most vulnerable. Sidoo Family Giving recently provided sanitizers and masks to residents of Oppenheimer Park. In order to prevent the threat we need to unite and protect our most vulnerable communities. “The situation is serious, and it is urgent. In a neighborhood where space, food, supplies, and everything is shared, if we have one infection, it could decimate this entire community,” DTES SRO Collaborative Society’s Wendy Pedersen says.
We encourage others to help where they can including supporting the Downtown East Side Response Group.
