I especially want to offer a big thank you to the following organisations and people for their early support of this project. The project is in need of financial support as well as volunteers who have:
- video editing skills
- technical skills
to help complete the documentary film No Way to Live.
There are many to thank for their support of this project. I am deeply grateful to the five women who have generously and graciously shared stories of their struggles living in poverty. May their stories touch your heart and move you to help create a more compassionate, caring and just Canada, where no one lives in the indignity of poverty.
This project began with the idea of a documentary film, hatched in conversation with Paul Lee at an “orphan’s” Christmas party at the home of Roy Male. The project exists today because of Paul’s undying support. Antonin Lhotsky has also been an invaluable support, doing the filming of the original interviews, and providing technical support. Others, too numerous to name, have provided moral support. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Many have provided financial support but the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul have given an extraordinarily generous donation. Their faith in this project has kept it from falling into darkness. Two other congregations of sisters have also provided generous support: The Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame (Nova Scotia) and The Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame (Kingston, ON).
Special thank you to these extraordinarily generous financial supporters:
