Can you help give children like Eddie* a brighter Christmas?
Eddie* is just six years old and was born with complex medical issues which requires him to have around the clock care.
Eddie’s mum Stacey* loves him dearly, however as a single mum she struggled to give him the care he needed. After Eddie had an extended stay in hospital and her own health deteriorated, OzChild was asked to find a safe and loving home for Eddie.
When the call out came from OzChild’s intake team, foster carers Anne* and Frank* did not hesitate and completed the necessary training which would ensure he was appropriately cared for when it was time for him to leave hospital.
Now 18 months later, Eddie is doing remarkably well. He has made a strong connection with Anne and Frank, giving them big smiles and giggles when he sees them and his health has stabilised.
By making a donation this Christmas you can help us grow our pool of trained carers and ensure that we are able to continue to care for children like Eddie. Most importantly, you will be helping to transform the lives of vulnerable children and their families.
