Support someone like Riya*, who has no family they can turn to for help this Christmas

The last two years of the COVID pandemic have had a devastating impact on low-income families like Riya’s. All Riya wants is to be able to give her daughters a bright future, with food in the pantry and a safe place to call home.

Unemployment, rent prices, and mental and physical health issues are just some of the things which can lead to financial crisis – but each person has their own story.



The rise in cost of living is leaving families like Riya’s in the lurch. Please help a family in need this Christmas.

I learned that community help is the biggest thing that happens in Australia.
That is the very positive thing that can impact people like me to help them grow and get away from the things they are struggling with. It means a lot to us (the ones who are struggling).”



Donate today to provide food hampers and financial aid for struggling families like Riya’s.

"We do not have any friends and relatives or anyone who can support us. And CatholicCare was like a family. They supported me so much. They support like how my parents could have supported me."
