REDI.E teams have distributed food hampers to communities in need, thanks to help from the First Peoples Disability Network Australia (FPDN) and the Al-Ihsan Foundation.
FPDN were given 786 food relief packages from the Al-Ihsan Foundation and reached out to REDI.E for assistance in storing and delivering them.
The food hampers were donated to support our elders and the most vulnerable during the COVID-19.
The food relief packages have been delivered to several communities, including Coonabarabran, Gulargambone, Broken Hill and Ivanhoe - and surrounding areas.
Members from the REDI.E Indigenous Youth Services team Brandy Lamb and Wendy Lake went into the Gular community, to deliver 10 parcels and have a yarn with the elders.
Brandy and Wendy worked with several organisations to select the recipients. They liaised with the community, the Aboriginal Land Council Board Members and Indigenous Medical Support Worker.
The donations were truly appreciated, with smiles all around in Coonabarabran and Gulargambone.
This initiative is funded/supported by the Australian Government.
