Brothers in Need and Islamic Relief Australia
With restrictions easing in NSW over the past month, we’ve ramped up our efforts to help vulnerable communities locally as part of our partnership with Brothers in Need. During the pandemic we’ve worked alongside Brothers in Need to provide warm meals, hygiene packs and non-perishable food items to those most at risk, including the homeless, frontline workers and families doing it tough during this difficult time.
Recently, we’ve also joined the Brother in Need team in monthly visits to the Birrong Respite Centre, which provides short-term accommodation and support to young adults with disabilities. During these visits, volunteers spend quality time with residents, socialising and engaging in recreational activities.
In our last visit to the Birrong Respite Centre, our friends at Brothers in Need generously donated two new wheelchairs to the centre – to help them continue doing the fantastic work they do. We are proud to collaborate with local community organisations, like Brothers in Need, which are committed to helping those in need, here at home.
We will continue to expand the types of activities that we are involved in, so stay in touch if you are interested in volunteering. Part of our partnership with Brothers in Need involves visiting the Birrong Respite Centre on the first Wednesday of each month and feeding the homeless once a month on Saturdays. Watch this space.
Please remember that you can help us continue our work helping those impacted by Covid 19 by donating to Help at Home
