    Hurting Hope book

    "Sometimes being a father isn't what it was meant to be... It's hard to describe the very moment when you first comprehend that something significant is wrong with your child-that they have a major illness or disability, or that they are going to die. In that moment, you realize there has not been a mistake, it is your child, and nothing can be done about it. It is only a second in time, but it needs so much longer to explain..." In this book Charles and Joanne Hewlett share honestly about parenthood dominated by sickness, disability, suffering, death and grief. Their strong Christian faith gives them hope, but the pain and the misunderstanding and the struggle still has to be lived, one day at a time. This gritty book is essential reading for all carers, nurses, counsellors and others who support such families with disabled children. Learn More

Fires, floods and other nasties
If there has been a natural (or man made) disaster in your country, like fires, floods or even terrorism, and you'd like to support the groups in that area, depending which country you give from, we'll make sure these groups get help. The money will go to celebration items (like Christmas books or birthday gifts) and financial support of the local groups affected.
Families at risk
We're connecting with families who don't always see the value of mainly music sessions first off - but when they attend other services provided by agencies and participate, their smiles return as they connect with their child. It fills mum's life and develops the bond with her children.
Mental wellness
We have many stories where mothers say, "I went to my GP. I was told to go on medication. I found mainly music. I don't need medication at all." Post natal depression, social isolation, and anxiety can stop anyone in their tracks. Contributing to this fund in NZ will assist the sessions held at Walsh Trust, where mothers have been hospitalised for their PND. Contributing in Australia will assist sessions for families experiencing the effects of mental unwellness.
