Event description
The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health (Sydney) is hosting its annual health kit packing day over 3 days to pack 7,500 health kits.

About this event

Each year the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health at the University of Sydney packs thousands of health kits which are distributed to schools, communities and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services across NSW to provide Aboriginal children with a toothbrush, toothpaste and water bottle.

We rely on volunteers to pack the individual items into cases and then into boxes which are picked up by a courier on the same day to deliver to Aboriginal communities.

Whether you can volunteer for all three days, one day or part of one day we appreciate the efforts of volunteers to pack health kits.

Each day is from 9am - 2pm and refreshments will be provided.

Social distancing requirements will be practiced and hand sanitizer will be provided to ensure this is a COVID-SAFE event.

The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health is an example of the power of partnership in achieving real change and genuinely contributing to closing the gap in life expectancy. Established and funded by philanthropists Greg Poche AM and Kay Van Norton Poche, Poche Centres seek to leverage the best of the best in Universities with communities and governments to seek solutions that address complex health problems faced by Aboriginal people.  The Poche family has gifted more than $50m to Aboriginal health in the past ten years.

 

The Poche Centre works with leading researchers, alumni, faculty and students to bring their knowledge together with communities to find sustainable, workable, affordable solutions to health issues including Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, oral health, specialist medical, allied health, social and emotional well-being, chronic disease, workforce development and health promotion.
