This holiday season — my first one in Canada! — leads me to reflect on my priorities in life: connections to people and the natural world, compassion for others and making a meaningful contribution while on this planet.

Thank you to everyone for making Providence such a unique organisation.
International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event held on 31 August each year and aims to raise awareness of overdose and reduce the stigma of a drug-related death.
