After working hard for all her life Sandra was looking forward to retirement.

Can you imagine what it must have been like for Sandra—a grandmother in her late 50s, full of grief, suddenly jobless, homeless, and sleeping in a car with an 18-month old little girl she had committed to caring for?

Now she constantly struggles to provide her granddaughters with an education, food on the table and a secure home.

Sandra needed someone to help her, and quickly. 

For Sandra, Uniting was able to support  with crisis accommodation, financial support and advice food relief and other aid which allowed her to focus on building for the future.
 
Your generous gift will give more than hope this Christmas, it will provide urgent support for those in need.
