ALICE SPRINGS WOMEN'S SHELTER

We provide clothes to the women's shelter in Alice Springs by freighting boxes to the Northern Territory. We have also purchased baby nappies and feminine hygiene products for the shelter. Our president has visited the centre that faced closure fears and is now being moved to a new location.

Aboriginal men's healing centre

The Pilbara is providing an innovative approach to stopping the cycle of domestic abuse. The Aboriginal Elders are integral to the success of this centre.  Aboriginal men, who would otherwise be incarcerated, are housed in a centre that allows them to rehabilitate in their cultural environment with spiritual elders and western psychologists.

Uganda

Over the years, we have funded the purchase of a rice paddy and a farm by community members for agricultural purposes. We have further assisted a woman, Alice, to start a bakery in Jinja. This bakery has fed many local kids and families for several years now.

tanna projects

This Cobbitty-based charity provides resources to the people living on remote  Tanna Island, Vanuatu as they struggle to live alongside an active volcano. Warm clothing has been difficult for the Tanna Island residents due to their remote location. MHC provided many bags of clothing to be transported to Vanuatu.

Send Hope not flowers

Builder turned Doctor Barry Kirby made it his life mission to reduce maternal mortality in Papua New Guinea. In just three years, childbirth deaths have plunged by 75 per cent in the health centres he supports.  Dr Kirby and his charity, The Hands of Rescue Foundation, formed an initiative that encourages mothers to give birth in a supervised health centre rather than in an isolated village.

Samaritan's Purse

MHC donated funds to Samaritan's Purse to facilitate clean drinking water for a number of villages overseas. We also provide many goods for their Operation Christmas Child which sees gift boxes delivered to children in poor communities.

mercy ships

We have supported the cause of Mercy Ships. Because over 50% of the world’s population lives within 160km of the coast, Mercy Ships are able to sail a modern hospital ship with a crew of 400 volunteers directly to people who lack access to first-rate medical care.
