The team at The Pas Primary Health Care Centre got together in the spirit of Trappers Festival to enter the snow sculpting contest. They were inspired by the World Breastfeeding Week slogan for 2018, "Breastfeeding: Foundation of Life". In a world filled with inequity, crises and poverty, breastfeeding is the foundation of lifelong good health for babies and mothers. breastfeeding prevents hunger and malnutrition in all its forms and ensures food security for babies, even in times of crises. With no additional burden on household income, breastfeeding is a low-cost way of feeding babies and contributes to poverty reduction. Nutrition, food security and poverty reduction are fundamental to achieving the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.

The team was awarded 2nd place and $75 for the Ice & Snow Sculpture Contest with the Northern Trappers Festive Inc. All proceeds will be going towards our local Breastfeeding Committee in The Pas.
