St Pat’s raised $1000 for project compassion!

Project Compassion Thank you for being so generous in supporting our Project Compassion appeal. We have almost raised $1000, which is double our school goal! Classes will continue collecting in their Project Compassion boxes until the end of Lent. Michaela is a 21-year-old trainee at Purple House, a dialysis center in the Central Desert for people suffering from kidney disease.

The Aboriginal controlled service gives patients the opportunity to stay connected with their culture. They do this through traditional healing practices and income-generating activities, such as making bush balms and soaps. With the support of Caritas partners, Michaela is helping to build a social enterprise, a connection to culture and a new outlook for the chronically ill. Project Compassion 2019 can help provide essential health care, employment, and training for First Australians like Michaela.
