“ IWD is a perfect day for us local women to get together and celebrate with some fun. It’s also a perfect day to help women just like us. “
Ms. Lewis said that she had become increasingly concerned by the conditions that women and girls were facing in offshore detention. Many other women she spoke to, were looking for a way to pitch in and help.
“ ‘How can we help?’ is what I hear others asking.”
“Women and girls on Nauru are facing an uncertain and terrible time. Their safety, the state of their health, and their emotional wellbeing is deeply worrying. They are also lacking the basic care items and medical support that many of us take as given. Their detention continues to be grueling and indefinite.” said Ms Lewis.
“ We are going to use our wonderful brand of local generosity, our donations and our great community vibe to let the women and girls on Nauru know that we care.” she said.
“We’re also gearing up to laugh our cheek bones off, ably assisted by the wonderful Vicki Habberly.”
