“It’s not what’s under the Christmas Tree that matters, it’s who are around it.” – Charlie Brown. 

This is what comes to mind not only when looking back on the wonderful time we had at the Karinya House Christmas party last Thursday but also on the journey of this past year. Karinya provides life changing support to women, children and families each and every day of year, including Christmas Day!  Women seek the help and support of Karinya House for many different reasons. Every woman has a story and every story is unique. The Christmas party is a time where we especially get to celebrate this. It was a fantastic celebration as it is, each year, celebrating with many mums we have supported in the past as well as new women to Karinya. There were many smiles, delicious food, a special visit from Santa, and of course, one of the best gifts of all – precious time spent with mum and bub.
