Explore traveled to the Arctic on a philanthropic fact-finding mission to uncover the issues facing the Inuit people. Even issues we are familiar with are magnified in this part of the world; such as the social conditions they live in. In a recent survey, the Nunavut territory in the Arctic had a violent crime rate eight times that of Canada overall. And 90% of the victims were women.
Explore takes us to Qimaavaik Women’s Shelter, in Iquluit, Nunavut, Canada, a safe haven for women and children fleeing violent home situations.
