WOB donates $3500 to help children in Gaza and young men’s mental health initiatives

18/12/2023

Women on Boards has donated $3,500 to two charities on behalf of the 44 speakers who generously gave their time to WOB events and programs in the second half of 2023. 

 

Save the Children Australia (Gaza Appeal) and Top Blokes Foundation (male health and wellbeing) will both receive $1,750 to support their critical work with children and young men at risk of self-harm. 

The charities were chosen by the WOB team for very different reasons. Save the Children is clearly part of the international effort to support children in Gaza cut off from the basics they need to survive; while Top Blokes Foundation was chosen in recognition of a long-term WOB member whose 22-year-old son recently committed suicide and to acknowledge others in the WOB family who have experienced a similar loss. 

The first half of the year saw $3,300 donated on behalf of speakers to the Adara Development (Australia), part of the group set up by Audette Exel AM to support maternal, newborn and maternal health in remote regions of the world.
