Celebrating Resilience: Mothering during COVID-19 Video

 

Madame Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and Dr. Sharon Johnston took time out of their busy schedules to come and talk with refugee, newcomer, and Indigenous mothers in the HIPPY program. The mothers were given a once in a lifetime opportunity to speak with the two leaders about what has been on their hearts since the beginning of the global pandemic.

 

The three-part discussion series was incredibly emotional and thought-provoking. Topics ranged from fear of leaving the house to food insecurity and everything in-between. The women cried together, laughed together, and most importantly, shared their lived experiences with one another. The series went into detail about COVID-19 and how its mandated social isolation measures have magnified the daily hardships and isolation experienced by many HIPPY families. And yet, HIPPY mothers continue to demonstrate remarkable resilience and resourcefulness through it all.
