As part of our Year 12 Community Studies course in 2015, student from the School of Community Studies, Hospitality & Lifestyle are striving to raise $1800 to package 600 birthing kits for the Australian Birthing Kit Foundation.
Students will work together to create these basic birthing kits, which include a plastic sheet, soap, 2 gloves, sterile scalpel blade, 3 cords and 5 gauze squares. The kits will be sent to villages in Third World Countries where women are unable to give birth in sanitized areas.
Students have been actively involved organizing events and raffles to raise money for this project; this year’s International Women’s Day Breakfast and Easter Stall at St Patrick’s to name a few.
Working with Adrienne Williams from the ZONTA Club of Para District Area, students will host a Pamper Grandparents morning on Tuesday 2 June. The Club has generously contributed $350 towards the students quest to raise money.
Last night, Millie Carmody and Shannon Chamberlain (pictured) attended the Biennium Dinner held at the Country Comfort Adelaide Manor to accept the generous donation on behalf of their class. Including this donation, the class has now raised $600 and will be working diligently together to raise an additional $1200 this term.
