Currently there is a Canadian community that needs our help! The Attawapiskat First Nation community in James Bay has declared a state of emergency. "Presently there are five families living in tents; 19 families living in sheds without running water; 35 families living in houses needing serious repair; 128 families living in houses condemned from black mould and failing infrastructure; 118 families living with relatives (often 20 people in a small home); there are 90 people living in a construction trailer. There's a need for 268 houses just to deal with the immediate backlog of homelessness." The elementary school in the area shut down awhile ago, and the quality of water in this area is causing rashes to break out on the faces of children. The government isn't doing anything to help so we need to make them! Please sign this petition to let the government know that you care about these very vulnerable people. No one should have to live in conditions like this. Here is an article for more information: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/charlie-angus/attawapiskat-emergency_b_1104370.html#s487209
