Waminda would like to acknowledge the strength, resistance and resilience our community continues with day in and day out.
We have had a year of coming out of COVID when COVID is still in existence, the challenges of being social and learning what the 2022 norm was. We’d like to thank all of the staff, students and volunteers for all of the incredible work that has occurred this year, it is impossible to single out only a few examples as there are hundreds but suffice to say, Waminda has again been able to grow, evolve, improve, succeed, learn and lead.
Waminda is looking forward to 2023, and starting the construction of the first Birthing On Country Centre Of Excellence in Australia. The Minga Gudjaga program has ended this year with a Minga Gudjaga ceremony, a rite of passage that allows new families to cleanse the mind, body and spirit from negativity, pain, sorrow and trauma to allow mums and bubs to thrive and heal. This strength and love is what our children need to see to become strong, resilient and cultural people in society.
Waminda is looking forward to the 2023 year and walking side by side with our women and their families.
Take care of each other and we will see you in January.
– The Exec team
