Whilst we would love everyone to experience beauty and kindness in their lives, sadly this is sometimes not the case, which is why the work of organisations such as Annie North Inc, is so important.
Together with our Malmaison community, we are so grateful that with Annie North's important work we can help those most vulnerable and in need of immediate crisis support.
Annie North provides crisis and transitional support and refuge accommodation to women and children who are escaping domestic and family violence, or who are homeless due to domestic and family violence.
Across Australia, around 56,000 women are homeless each night, many with young children. Now, due to covid there are many more. Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.
Annie North provides a 24 hour 7 day a week 365 days a year service providing a crisis response to all women and children and is dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay and an opportunity to rebuild their lives.
Most women and children flee with basically what they are wearing and what they can carry and nothing more. We can assist Annie North by donating to them directly. Donations of $20 could buy a pair of school shoes, $100 groceries for a week, $400 can place a woman in a support group, $1,000 can fund a children’s art therapy program, or assist a woman to purchase major household appliances.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF COUNTRY
Annie North & Malmaison would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, skies and waterways. We pay our respects to the Elders past and present, the Aboriginal Community and the Children who bring hope for all future generations. The Children remind us of the joy and gentleness of the Aboriginal people and will become the future Elders of this land. We remember that underneath this land, on which we so firmly stand, this is, was and always will be traditional Aboriginal land and we thank you for sharing it with us.
