Make a Difference

The team at HELPgta and Medics Camp really does care about the people and communities they serve.  Our current virtual service offerings have expanded our community beyond physical geography so we've decided to dedicate an entire page to things that matter, events that are happening and bring awareness to health related conditions that affect us all.

Blood Plasma & COVID-19

The Canadian Blood Services is part of a national clinical trials program designed to test the efficacity of convalescent blood plasma as a safe  treatment option for patients with the virus.

When a person is infected with a virus, their body starts making antibodies to fight it. It is believed these antibodies could be the key ingredient for a treatment to help others with the same virus.

If you or someone you know has had COVID-19 and would like to help click HERE to register with Blood Services.

Children's Dental Health Month

Teeth are important and it's not entirely about your smile.  February is children's dental health month and we want to bring awareness to the importance of teaching children good oral hygiene habits early in life, routine dental exams and the wearing of mouth guards when playing sports.

Organ Donation-The Gift of Life and Legacy

The current legislation in Nova Scotia has started a conversation that needed to happen.  According to a statistic quoted in a recent article  85% of Ontarians support organ donation but only one-third have opted in.  It only takes a couple of minutes to register and age alone is not a disqualifier. 

More than 1,500 people in Ontario are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. This is their only treatment option, and every 3 days someone will die because they did not get their transplant in time. (

Did you know that one person donating their organs can save the lives of up to 8 other people?  How amazing is it to know you could be a hero even after you die!
