A Port In The Storm | Safe, Affordable accommodations for critical illness patients - Winnipeg, Canada

What is 'A Port in the Storm'?

A Port in the Storm is a safe haven for rural and northern adults living in Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. Our goal is to reduce the financial burden of serious illness on those who must travel to and remain in Winnipeg to receive medical care. It is 'a place to call home'.

Earlier this month, we launched our first promotional video. A big thank-you to Addison Sandy who generously donated his time and expertise to create the video and to all our families and volunteers for sharing their stories. Thank you.
