oxfam trailwalker - 55km walk 2019

Angie is training hard with her team for the Oxfam 55km walk on 22nd June. $2 from every massage will be donated towards this event Being able to contribute and make a difference just by walking, is the most wonderful feeling. This walk will:

  1. Provide essential maternal health care and clean conditions for women to birth and recover. Provide birth survival kits to help with pre and post natal care. (1500 women die daily due to preventable complications)

  2. Raise awareness that millions of people do not have clean water to drink. Women walk an average 6kms a day to collect just 20L of water for their families. We flush that down the toilet in 2 flushes!

  3. A personally physical and mental challenge. To feel my body at work, be grateful for it and look after it!

  4. Feel gratitude for all we have! Plentiful CLEAN water, a healthy family and home, and a wonderful community.

We are able to provide support, advice and if required contents for the boxes to enable the families to achieve this,

  • Support 'beyond the box' by running monthly support groups combined with memory box making facilitated by a qualified counsellor,

  • Provide education to health professionals and other groups on caring for bereaved families and the use of memory boxes.
