This women's services provider in Mackay assists women and children just when they need it most. Now they need your help.
Requested donations include fuel and grocery vouchers, mobile phones, books and clothes suitable for children and women, art supplies and much more
This organisation in Mackay assists upwards of 200 women and children every week, providing:
- Sexual assault counselling;
- Domestic violence counselling; and
- Children's counselling.
Many of the organisation's clients are escaping a dangerous situation and are starting from scratch. They require immediate emergency relief which extends to food and fuel vouchers, toiletries, sanitary items and household items. The organisation also looks to help clients with their mental health and wellbeing by providing items like children's toys, books and art supplies.
Whilst the organisation does not provide accommodation, many women and children who access their services are homeless, and shelters in Mackay are constantly full.
