The power of your generosity

Your kindness at Christmas gave vulnerable families the gift of secure housing and hope for the year ahead. 

You may remember Kelvin*, Emma and Olive from our Christmas Appeal. Their young family faced being evicted and becoming homeless just days before Christmas.

Thankfully, your support came just in time. Because of your help, our support worker Cathy was able to connect them with a local church that housed them over Christmas.

We’ve since helped them move into a permanent home and access the financial support they’re entitled to. They now have a stable base for Kelvin to rest between hospital visits, and a secure home where the whole family can experience the safety and dignity they deserve.

I saw the family recently. They’d just done a big grocery shop – something they never used to have the money for. It’s so good to see them happy again.Cathy, Mission Australia support worker

Thank you for your generosity and compassion.
