General donations from our community support women with direct casework and health support services, as well as in many little practical ways. For example, currently Karinya House is supporting women to access medical specialists for themselves and their babies where the excess costs above medicare are not within reach for women on their own.

As of 11 February, we now have a wonderful contribution from Dr Loc Lam and her big hearted little team over at Braddon Dental Surgery.  As we mentioned previously, the amazing Dr Lam and her Team at Braddon Dental Surgery have started a series of “charity days” throughout 2021.  The entire takings of each day will be donated to charities selected by the Braddon Dental Surgery Team.  You can read more in this fabulous City News Article.

Saturday 6 February was the day where Karinya House was the nominated charity. The Charity Day they held for Karinya House, opening on Saturday 6 February 2021 was booked out. The team contributed their services and the total raised was over $4,000. All takings for the day were donated to Karinya House.

The images here are of the Braddon Dental Team on The Day and then also pictured with Senior Caseworker Ana, last week. Ana and Executive Officer, Belinda Munn visited the Surgery to meet with the team during their lunch break, and collect the cheque!

Thank you Dr Lam and your Team for this fabulous community engagement project and for your generosity of heart and spirit and time!
