NAB Community Grants
Rural Health Connect will soon feature in an ad by NAB for its Community Grants, which we were fortunate to be a recipient of. Our section features 11-year-old Cooper and was filmed in beautiful East Gippsland. We are very grateful for Cooper for being involved. Cooper was evacuated with his family several times during the fires and afterwards experienced recurring nightmares of being surrounded by fires. He spoke to one of our psychologists and the nightmares went away. He said he hopes sharing his experiences will encourage other people to ask for help.
Cooper is starring alongside some very cute koalas, from 1300KOALAZ. They are an organisation in South Australia that cares for sick and injured koalas and is also committed to regenerating their habitat, to protect future generations of koalas.
