Provide one night of accommodation in a motel or hotel to a person who is experiencing homelessness in Mackay.
Sleeping rough is physically and mentally exhausting. People who sleep rough often experience muscle soreness and rigidity, pressure wounds from the concrete, insect bites and more. Anxiety is at an all time high, and often sleep is very broken due to fear of being attacked by animals or other humans.
As one of our clients once said, "It's so much more than just a bed for the night".
Giving somebody a room provides them with a chance to rest and recover, charge their electronics, watch some television and have a warm shower. It is a mental break as much as it is a physical break.
Thank you for your generosity. Sleep well tonight knowing that thanks to you, somebody has a safe, clean place to lay their head in a time of darkness.
Please note: despite the charity name (Australian Street Aid Project), we are still a local Mackay charity. All items are distributed locally in Mackay, QLD 4740.
