Children are precious in November

Dwellephant outdid himself with this mixed media painting for the Peel Children';s Aid Foundation 2-in-1 calendar and Annual Report created by wishart. The story behind the drawing is anything but delightful, however: Fleeing her native country after suffering sexual abuse for ten years, Paige gave birth to a son just two days after arriving in Canada. Living in a shelter, she knew no one and had no supplies for her newborn baby. The Infant Wellness team guided her to available support in the community and with the help of the Foundation, was able to provide her with a new stroller and basic baby supplies to ease some of her financial and emotional strain.
