Our homeless and needy guests are most vulnerable to illness. So the recent COVID-19 outbreaks in Western Sydney and the Northern Beaches posed a real risk to their health.
Without the means to afford face masks they had an increased probability of contracting COVID-19. Not to mention being in breach of public health orders that required the wearing of masks at that time.
Thankfully, the NSW government stepped in to help. They supplied us with 30,000 disposable face masks. Their kind support enabled us to protect the most at-risk groups in the community.
