Flags of Hope event to comfort, support families affected by drug addiction

Winnipeg Sun, June 3, 2018

Two Winnipeg mothers will never again get to hug their sons and tell them that they love them, after fatal drug overdoses killed them. These mothers are throwing an event on Sunday to share their stories and to bring hope to those who have lost a loved one to drug overdoses.

On Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Riverview Community Centre, anyone who has lost a loved one or is struggling with addictions in the family is invited to attend the free event, Flags of Hope, in partnership with Mothers Stop the Harm. Together the families will create flags, based on Tibetan prayer flags, in memory of their loved ones. The event will also feature time for sharing stories and a presentation on Naloxone awareness.
