Broth-ers in arms help the home­less

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

HOME­LESS Healthcare’s first pa­tron, WA Gover­nor Kerry San­der­son, helped the not-for­profit group raise nearly $10,000 through its Soup Kitchen dur­ing the re­cent Home­less­ness Week.

Ms San­der­son was among vol­un­teers in Brook­field Place ear­lier this month en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to buy soup made by chefs such as An­dre Mahe, Dan Fisher and Brad John­ston. Money raised at the an­nual event will help the Home­less Healthcare ser­vice meet the in­creas­ing de­mand for med­i­cal ser­vices among Perth’s home­less.

The ser­vice cur­rently vis­its 11 sites in the metropoli­tan area and pro­vides a mo­bile GP clinic at drop-in cen­tres, youth cen­tres, women's refuges, shel­ters and drug and al­co­hol re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion fa­cil­i­ties.

Peo­ple can host their own ‘soup kitchen’ at home. Call Tricia Slee, 6260 2092, email tricia. slee@home­lesshealth­care.org.au.
