Your compassion can bring comfort to a vulnerable child, who, through no fault of their own, is forced to enter out of home care or is escaping family violence.
You can help a child overcome this traumatic experience, by sponsoring an Emergency Pack for a child to feel safe and settled as they transition into their new surroundings on their very first night.
Provide an EMERGENCY PACK now to show that you care for WA kids escaping abuse or neglect
Carefully packed by Volunteers, your Emergency Pack includes: Two changes of clothing, essential underwear, pyjamas, toiletry items such as soap and toothpaste, reading book, soft toy for comfort and cuddles
By donating an Emergency Pack today, you can show a child in need that you care, at a time when their whole world has been turned upside down. Each pack costs $85, but any amount you can afford will make a meaningful difference.
In the year just gone 684 West Australian children and young people were placed in foster or other out of home care through no fault of their own. A further 293 were subject to protection orders as they continue to be monitored. These vulnerable people are unable to live with their families for a variety of reasons, which can include abuse or neglect. Many arrive at out of home care with nothing other than the clothes on their back, in a state of shock, feeling abandoned and scared. Donate today and help bring comfort to a child as they begin their path to a brighter future.
“He was so excited when he opened his pack and saw all of the amazing things inside. He spent hours drawing in his colouring book, playing with the toys, even making sure that everything in his bag had its own place in his new bedroom." – Foster carer
