These sorts of situations are why the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s Buddy Bags are so important.
Too often children arrive at emergency centres, foster care or refuges after having fled family violence with nothing but the clothes on their back, or a rubbish bag of hastily gathered items.
There was the 10-year-old boy who arrived at a refuge with his dad, traumatised and with very little of his own. Or children like 7-year-old Annabel who, with her mum, fled to a bare hotel room with just the clothes she was wearing after escaping the flood that took their home.
Your kind gift this Christmas can put a Buddy Bag into the arms of children experiencing trauma and help them start to recover.
Thank you for your support. Your donation of $2 or more is tax-deductible.
