Helping Homeless Women of Montreal

Friday December 22, 2017

With the money I raised through henna, I donated 60 shower kits as well as women’s personal hygiene products. These shower kits will be mostly used by Inuit women (not in the picture for safety reasons) who are in vulnerable situations or are homeless.

My ancestors of Sri Lankan-Tamil origin have been stripped away from their land, rights, language, freedom, and more. There is a strong parallel amongst the Indigenous communities of Canada and those of Tamils across the world. I feel it’s important to acknowledge this and do our part to help them however we can. Access to clean water, healthcare, education and much more are still not available for many Aboriginals. I will continue to find ways to help them through my foundation and specifically women and those most vulnerable.

Thank you again for your donations and let’s continue to make this world a little better for those in need.

Chez Doris is a charitable organization offering a daytime shelter seven days a week for all women in difficulty. The house provides meals, respite, clothing, socio-recreational activities as well as practical assistance in a secure and accepting environment. Their vision is to give women in need a safe and nonjudgmental environment where confidentiality is assured.
