We are committed to serving the impoverished communities of
multi-cultural nationalities & residents

We hope to be of valued assistance in the service of helping disadvantaged communities through a western placed culture that has in part distanced us from the roots of our own culture, leading to the trauma of a shortened life expectancy, heightened health risks, & impoverished life.

We are here to be a point of contact & established sharing in traditional
culture to help return us to
the roots of past good health we urgently require.
Our cultural heritage
awareness is increasingly
diminishing, been swamped
by modern western

we need to look to our
own future of growth to
accommodate the demand.

We have long term experience to
know where available resources
can be best placed within
the community.

faces the prospect of moving
beyond the growing issues
faced by the communities we
serve today & to help mitigate the
the offset of growing issues & neglect.

A past of trauma needs
it's healing to move beyond.

Bush Tucker

Specialists are telling us
that as a people,
we need to be eating a
a whole lot more of
our own native foods.

Every other nationality that
has made Australia their home,
have brought their own
foods with them.
In every major city in
our country, finding other
nation's foods readily available
is easier than sourcing Australian
indigenous cultural food.
To buy bush tucker is
not so easy.

Our vision is to see
our communities serviced with
a bush tucker program to share
publicly & bring indigenous closer
to our dietary needs.

As part of our vision...
We need to establish the
obtaining of land large enough
to have both an emu &
a kangaroo farm.

Bush flora & fauna will be
grown & made available in conjunction
with dietary healing.

Your donation will help us.
With our research & formulated
strategies of returning indigenous
closer to their homegrown
nutritional dietary needs & education,
in which statistically we are losing our
longevity of life & connection
to the historical country without.

Any donation is
highly appreciated!
Your help brings us closer
to reaching our goals.

Starting goal to
reach establishment.

Healing Centre

Paid & voluntary employment
