In Nunavut, there is a very modern and efficient hospital in the capital city of Iqaluit, providing excellent state-of-the-art care.
Each year about 400 expectant moms are flown in to Iqaluit to have their babies. They are given wonderful care while their in the hospital but are then returned to their communities, often with very little to properly care for their newborn.
Our desire is to send each mom home with a “Baby Pac” full of new cloths and supplies that will see the baby through its first critical year of life.
