770,000 reasons


Statistics tell us that 770,000 children live in poverty in Australia, and we are determined that we can ensure the children we see – don’t go hungry. Families have been dramatically affected by the spiral in the cost of living and so then shopping lists are cut by fruit and vegetables. We distribute boxes of them and have a small allocation of funds to assist with utility bills when power is about to be cut.
Poverty, crisis, and giving people a fresh start, are great maxims to live by, and we are determined to live up to our name to “make a difference”
