Support from the Heart
This half hour documentary is about three immigrant
families who experience difficulties as they try to access the health
care system and other public institutions. The video is also about
Edmonton's Multicultural Health Brokers co-op. This is a worker's
co-operative of fifteen immigrant women who strive to help these families
to sustain and improve their health.
These women act as "brokers" between immigrants and the
service providers who work in the health, family and social services,
enforcement and education systems. The video is a testimony to the
success of the cultural brokers and to the resiliency of immigrant
and refugee families.
