HELPING PEOPLE HELPING CHILDREN
Australian children are among the luckiest in the world, but even here many children are exposed to great pain and risk.
We actively support two organisations that help children, every hour of every day; to improve the value of their lives, to bring them hope and comfort and to change the situation around them so that things improve over time.
We are inspired by these groups; the work they do is tough and confronting, and they rely on others to help them survive. These people are doing fantastic work on our behalf, and making a WORLD of difference in the lives of young children here and around the world.
UNICEF works in over 190 countries to promote and protect the rights of children.
The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, clean water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and HIV. UNICEF also contributes in times of crisis with emergency relief.
UNICEF research shows that 11 per cent of children in Australia live in relative poverty. The most at-risk groups are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children in out-of-home care and children of asylum seekers. UNICEF Australia works with and advocates on behalf of all children in Australia.
Camp Quality improves the quality of life for children living with cancer, and their families - through unrelenting optimism and the healing power of laughter.
For the last 30 years they have been supporting children with cancer, along with their siblings and parents, throughout their journey. Their programs use education, performance, recreation, respite and play to build optimism, resilience and supportive networks for families. All programs are 100% free of charge.
In response to the growing demand from parents, education and health sector professionals Camp Quality is also in the process of developing programs for children under 13 who have a parent with cancer.
MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
These two charities do incredible things, every day of the week, for children who need help.
The difference they make in these children's lives is impossible to measure. They are an absolute inspiration and we are really happy to be able to partner with them and promote their work.
