One Mask a Time project
NCC is proud to be leading an exciting project called “One Mask a Time,” which supplies crafters with materials to make masks for NunatuKavut members and communities. These masks, which are provided free of charge, is part of ongoing initiatives we are undertaking to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
Our sincere appreciation to the Iron Ore Company of Canada (Rio Tinto) for their generous contribution toward this project for NunatuKavut members, as well as Indigenous peoples living in Labrador West.
This project is being coordinated through the Labrador West Indigenous Service Centre. If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Penney at 709-280-3061.
