COVID-19: BRIGHT FUTURES RESPONSE TO PANDEMIC
As we in Australia struggle with disruption and change our thoughts turn to our partners in India, Pakistan, Kenya and Uganda who face this pandemic without the benefits of a first world health system and without the resources we have available. We are deeply concerned for our partners and their staff as they endeavour to respond in their communities. The risk to those they serve is great, compounded as it is by poor health, little or no income and the very real prospect of starvation. People are fearful as they wait for this viral tsunami to hit. In response, Bright Futures is working with our partners on the ground to provide resources that will best meet their need at this critical time. If you would like to help in this endeavour by making a donation please do so by clicking on the donation link below or by calling us on 08 7225 7175.

Bright Futures partner group, Dorcas Creation has helped lift hundreds of women from the Mararui and Mathare slums in Nairobi out of poverty through teaching vocational and business skills that build confidence and help earn an income. For just $25 a month you can support four women each year through vocational and business skills training.
Why not become a child sponsor at just $42 per month and help a child living in poverty receive a life changing education and help for their family and community through community development projects that provide healthcare, training and clean water.

Lukodi Health Centre, a project of Bright Futures and its partner in Northern Uganda, is in an area where access to healthcare is very challenging and many die of preventable diseases. The centre has a focus on birthing services for mothers and babies, and on the education of the children of refugees. For just $30 per month you can help support the cost of a trained nurse at the centre and in doing so assist hundreds of people each month.
The education of children, particularly girls, is central in improving the social conditions in any developing community. For just $100 a month you can help provide access and support for education for children in a rural village in Pakistan.
