Stewart House, Sydney, Australia
Based in Sydney, Australia, Stewart House provides crucial care and respite for children in need. Every year up to 1700 children will visit Stewart House to participate in a 12-day health and wellbeing program. The Australian-based charity supports children who have been victims of abuse, domestic violence, neglect, and extreme poverty, are young carers themselves, and more.
While at Stewart House, these children are given basic healthcare, including dentistry and eye tests, and receive support from qualified psychologists. They also participate in fun activities with their peers to unwind and relax. The charity provides items such as toothbrushes, school shoes, and toiletries they cannot access.
With the help of MCS, in 2021 Stewart House was able to renovate its dining and social areas for their children to enjoy. They also obtained more essential items, including medications, toiletries, socks, underwear, and new shoes, all of which over 85% of children who arrive at Stewart House, do not have.
