In partnership with the federal, state and some local governments, Impact Of Drought and Fires Through The Eyes Of A Child aims to help children tell the stories of how fires and drought have affected themselves and their families.
Other than a chance for these important stories to be told and raise the awareness of the impacts of droughts and fires on regional communities, it is also a good opportunity for all the departments involved to work together on the community’s recovery.
It is also a great opportunity for young people and their family members themselves to be heard more on what they need from local, state and federal governments to aid their recovery, instead of the governments foisting upon them what they think the communities need.
There is a difference….
Also The Sharing Stories Walking Together Group in Albury Wodonga will be celebrating International Day For Worlds Indigenous People on August 9 and a group of mid-teenage students are using food products from the emergency food service to show people on low incomes on how to shop cook and eat nutritious meals at outdoor cooking demonstrations.
At Pigs Will Fly we wish Suzie and Anglicare the best on these exciting projects.
