Hope for Health

We are calling upon each and every one of YOU to join us within your own unique capacity, to fundraise for our next major step, a Trial Health Retreat on Elcho Island in 2016.


This is the pioneering step toward a permanent Indigenous run Health Retreat in Arnhem Land. It will give 30 Yolngu people the opportunity to experience good health their home country, Yolngu style!

We need to raise $80,000 to make this happen. This will cover the remaining program development and retreat expenses. Click here to find out more.
