Cape Dorset 2008

When we arrived in Cape Dorset we could feel the pain and heavy hearts as soon as we got off the plane. There had been a number of recent youth suicides and it had effected everyone. We were invited to a suicide prevention meeting and thanked many times by parents and elders who stated this was exactly what was needed to create hope and lift the communities spirits. The youth chose to create an art mural that stated “Never Give Up”. We got a chance to help build the confidence of some young youth leaders and see some of the great art this community produces. An amazing and intense week we will never forget !
