For 125 years Welcare has served vulnerable babies, children and parents. We want to continue finding ways to give hope to the most in need of support at this time of great anxiety and uncertainty.
Schools have closed and we have all been asked to avoid situations where we come together in order to slow down the risk of cross infection.
Many of the families we support will be self-isolating and we are concerned for those who were already struggling financially and emotionally including children in poverty whose home lives were already unsettled and filled with anxiety. These families will wonder how they can provide a simple lunch and daily essentials for their children.
Welcare staff are already distributing supermarket vouchers previously donated by generous church and community supporters to the families we are working with and who are in greatest need. With your help we can buy more vouchers to help families in need.
We have launched a digital campaign to help provide more supermarket vouchers for the families that urgently need our support.
Could you help us provide daily essentials for vulnerable families by forwarding this request to your friends and families through digital channels? Donations can be made directly on the website as well.
We have also set up a dedicated fundraising page on Facebook.
Please join us to create a world where every child and family is respected, included and resilient, and able to overcome challenges in life.
