Health in Kind has helped in creating a space where healthcare is easily accessible for the Indigenous as well as making it affordable. These are the usual two main barriers to the health care system for the Indigenous and Health in Kind is benefiting the community by filling this gap.
Volunteering for Health In Kind as a nurse has given me a different perception of the nursing world. I have learnt about connecting with people by simply giving and receiving love. This has given me the opportunity to carry out my nursing duties at work, with the same attitude.
Volunteering with Health in Kind has been a heartfelt experience which has helped me to grow in so many ways. It has been very enriching to engage with the community and impart services and knowledge that will hopefully empower and equip others to a healthy mind and body.
Volunteering with Health In Kind in two settings, a park and a school serving two beautiful indigenous communities was exciting to say the least. Engaging, educating and empowering individuals to take ownership of their health is more rewarding then providing the service of health itself. This is what Health In Kind gave me the opportunity to achieve!
Health in Kind has been an eye opener for me on the needs of communities across Australia. There is much to do and every bit goes a long way. It was heart-warming and inspiring to see the dedication of the volunteers.
