In 2019, while visiting the Rotary Capetown, Mary Crammond was introduced to Sheltersuit Foundation and Lyn. After seeing a Shelterbag, Mary’s first thought was “We don’t need that in Australia! Our government looks after us”. But with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it became apparent to her that Australia had more people experiencing homelessness than she first realised.
Now, Rotary Terrigal and Sheltersuit have started a project to share shelter with 400 people in the Central Coast region of Australia.
