Society has faced some of the most significant challenges ever presented over the past 10 months. Financial hardships, job losses, distanced from loved ones for indefinite periods of time and facing illness, alone, in order to protect others. An unimaginable year for so many.
At SIDS and Kids SA, we have been sharing the journey with another group of people challenged by what 2020 has presented. Bereaved Parents. The death of a child is a life changing event, a heartbreak immeasurable and incomparable to any other. But during this time of uncertainty, these parents have been forced to choose only 50 people...sometimes less, to attend their child's funeral. They have been distanced from the compassion and physical touch of hugs and support and they have journeyed their grief with only the phone call from our Counsellors. A life saving phone call for some.
100 people, donating $10 each = 10 families receiving support through the devastation of the coronial process, funeral planning and the rawness of grief with the support of a professional Grief Counsellor from SIDS and Kids SA.
