Economic Relief for Indigenous Families affected by COVID-19

CHWCMR is happy to announce the first workshop in the prevention of COVID-19 and immunization for Indigenous Migrants in WA. Our North, Central and South American indigenous represent a varied of languages ( more than 10 in our states) and tribes from the most remote parts of tropical rainforests to ancient kingdoms that were as developed as any other region in the world. The Vaccine roll-our has demonstrated to be a structural barrier for people of color. Therefore, CHWCMR is now focused to fight against exclusion to improve access to COVID-19 immunization among our indigenous migrant force.  A total of 80 families will receive $500 after completing their workshops in COVID-19 prevention and immunization.
