Sponsor a ME Pack

Sometimes children arrive in care with only the clothes on their back. Our backpacks and nappy bags provide the essentials for a child during a time of great uncertainty. Each ME pack includes essentials and items of comfort, to support a child entering out of home care or emergency accommodation, and costs just $75.00 to complete. 

Each ME Pack provides a child with around $400 worth of material aid. The value of hope and self esteem = priceless.

Donate Goods

B4VK gratefully accept  goods for our backpacks and nappy bags. Please check our Facebook page for items that we need on What We Need Wednesday.
