Reaching where it matters

For so many of us, we feel the pain for those struggling to buy food after their other expenses, and the discomfort of not knowing how to help.

When we spoke with Ramune from Unity Housing (SA), she reminded us that sometimes, being able to share a few items such as tea bags, long life milk, some pasta… can make the difference when money has run out for families, before next payments.

With this in mind, it’s been wonderful to see items gathered at various events at work, school, in families. In fact many more people are opting to redirect present purchases to a worthy cause…
