Della: Hurdles to Health (2012) This video was created by the Saskatoon Health Region. The film follows the life of a woman and her family in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan but it is a story that could easily be experienced in Winnipeg. The film provides a glimpse into the family's daily struggles as a working poor family and illustrates how poverty affects health and wellbeing.
