we are encouraging people to bring feminine products in exchange of $10.00 cover
Tampons for TED will be held at House of Targ (1077 Bank St, Ottawa) on Thursday May 21, 2015, 9pm. We will be encouraging people to bring feminine products in lieu of donation. Entry will still be permitted with the cost of $10.00. Local musicians The Wicked Mercy, The Gallop and Bearshark will be providing entertainment.
TED (Targeted Engagement and Diversion) is the newest program operated by the Ottawa Inner City Health partners. Developed in response to the high numbers of homeless people presenting to hospital ERs with symptoms of substance abuse and mental illness, the TED program not only offers a safe place for people to be monitored while under the influence but supports easy access to treatment and care for substance use, physical health problems and mental illness.
Feminine hygiene products will also be provided to Women’s Special Care Unit. This targets women who have been discharge from hospital, have mental health issues or have over whelming addiction issues. These women suffer from poor health status and getting there monthly cycle can be an overwhelming and limiting time of the month when supplies are low.
