As a global society, we find ourselves in an unprecedented time and collectively facing the upheaval of life amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Countries all across the globe are asking citizens to self-isolate and implementing ‘Shelter in Place’ orders.

The Samuel Centre for Social Connectedness is dedicated to building connectedness within and between communities and overcoming social isolation. At a time where we are being called to physically distance ourselves from one another, we must work together to ensure meaningful social connections and the ability of every person to exercise their basic human rights and lead a fulfilling life.
