The extreme weather conditions we all faced during summer had a significant impact on our guests.  Indeed, the rough sleepers we care for faced weeks of scorching temperatures, not to mention continued exposure to bush fire smoke.

Thankfully, your support enabled us to give them the help they needed. 

Our Loaves & Fishes Free Restaurant was a cool sanctuary from the blistering heat and our food vans distributed bottles of water to keep the homeless hydrated. 

In addition, when the bushfire smoke was at its worst our community nurse monitored the health of our most vulnerable guests, especially those suffering respiratory illnesses.
