REDI.E are working with First Peoples Disability Network Australia (FPDN) and the Al-Ihsan Foundation to deliver food relief packages to communities in the Central West.
FPDN were donated 786 food relief packages from the Al-Ihsan Foundation and reached out to REDI.E for assistance in obtaining a storage space in Dubbo. The space was needed to store and divide the packages, in preparation for delivery.
After discussing the plan with FPDN Regional Coordinator BLCW, Deb King, REDI.E agreed to offer assistance free of charge, by providing storage and assisting with the delivery of the packages to communities in need.
The food relief packages will be delivered to 11 communities, including Coonabarabran, Broken Hill and Ivanhoe - and surrounding areas.
This is the first ever domestic release donation the Al-Ihsan Foundation have done, as their donations generally go to third world countries.
Deb King from FPDN said the support from REDI.E has made a huge difference.
‘I want to say a huge thank you to all the team at REDI.E, we couldn’t have done it without all their support,’ she said.
REDI.E is proud to support our communities during these tough times.
