Samaritans Winter Appeal
In NSW 1 in 7 children are living below the poverty line. Samaritans 2018 Winter Appeal is
endeavouring to make an impact to improve this confronting statistic and I ask you and your parish to join me in our efforts. The reality is, there are children and families living in poverty within our Diocese.
Every Winter, Samaritans sees an influx of people seeking assistance. This could be a single mother fleeing her violent husband, being left with nothing as she takes shelter in a refuge. It could be the family breadwinner losing a job as industry closes, leaving a
choice of feeding the family or paying the bills. It could be grandparents on the pension raising their grandchildren because the parents suffer with mental illness.
