Photo of the Day: Reaching out to newcomers

Every day, we publish a photo to show Red Cross at work across the country or around the world. Do you have a photo to share? Let us know!

Manitoba Injury Prevention Coordinator Jennifer Montebruno (at front) facilitates a SMARTSTART workshop with students in the Adult EAL Program at Winnipeg Technical College. The program, which is geared to newcomers to Canada, educates participants on how to prevent injuries in a Canadian environment, covering such topics as hot and cold weather emergencies, home and road safety, and the importance of creating a first aid kit and emergency preparedness kit for the home. Seventy-five people attended this workshop. By month’s end, SMARTSTART educators will have delivered the training to 400 newcomers across  Manitoba.
