Change 1 Life
The founders of this organisation have given up everything to personally try and make a difference for those less fortunate than us.
They do this by providing homes for orphans, clinics for HIV+ children and babies, health care for those who cannot afford it, jobs and micro-industry for widows and the unemployed. They also teach communities in Africa about cleanliness, keeping good health and general skills that we in Australia may take for granted.

Entering Wedge Ministry
A self supporting ministry by Australian friends of ours in Fiji. We not only support Entering Wedge Ministry through monetary donations, we have also visited Fiji on a mission trip with the team to provide hands on support.
One of their projects is Prison Ministry, which involves supplying inmates with mattresses as they sleep on concrete floors, providing reading glasses, engaging one-on-one with inmates to give encouragement and support overall mental health, and continue with ongoing programs when inmates have been released with full time ministry sponsored Fijian workers.
The Ministry visit some of the remote villages and have provided funds for a boat to visit the outlaying islands (Fiji has 330 islands). These visits include medical work through natural treatments, consultations, blood sugar and blood pressure readings and hand out information and health related material.
During a recent visit by Eden Healthfoods, there were 300 consultations in a day - which was an outstanding achievement.
