New Hope Newsletter 2017

Half a year has gone and I can’t believe it. It has been a tough time for me, up and down to Perth from Broome for treatment at Murdoch Hospital! Couldn’t have made it without Al of course. Not exactly a tourist run. But I’m doing OK, so I’m learning to live in the moment. Good days and bad days make it hard for me to do as much as I wish I could do for New Hope. In it all I have not been able to get organised with a Newsletter to thank you for your support and keep...

Love Bundle Story

So by now like all of us, we are being inundated with glossy brochures and TV adverts from many organisations wanting a slice of your charity dollars for Christmas. All are worthy causes. Sometimes I feel a bit down that we don’t have the money to also give you a glossy brochure asking you to help New Hope India. The fact is that we don’t want to spend money on that because it would mean we would have to use some of your donation to pay for a glossy brochure or TV advert. So here is our simple message .Christmas...

Appeal from Maggie Sister

Dear Friends, I’m stepping out in faith to ask if you could help with New Hope Rural Leprosy Trust – India.

So to put it plainly, we are...

Nurse Maggie Documentary

Nurse Maggie is a poignant documentary that looks at the extraordinary life of Australian nurse and ‘Order of Australia Medal’ recipient, Maggie Sister and the work she undertakes with India’s most reviled and outcast people. The documentary by Heath Film works on two levels. Primarily it delves into Maggie’s chequered past, examines what motivates her, and what drives her to do this confronting work. Secondly it takes a physical journey with Nurse Maggie through the most inaccessible and marginalised areas of India. The physical and emotional journeys are inextricably entwined. As the film unfolds it becomes clear that through helping others Nurse...

Christmas News 2012

Christmas Love Bundles are given out to aged Leprosy patients and you receive a card to pass on as a gift to others, for every Christmas Love Bundle purchased. Maybe you will buy a Love Bundle card on behalf of your family or to give as a gift to a friend or family member who you know would rather see that you have, on their behalf given a gift that will change a life, than be given another $20 gift voucher for yet another CD! $20 dollars is all it takes to give something so treasured to people in much...

Maggies News 2012

Hello Friends of New Hope, It’s been a while since I wrote a newsletter. That’s because I have felt a bit down and I know why. In February I was to take my annual trip to New Hope India, and my partner Allan was coming with me.I was so looking forward to it as Allan hadn’t been to New Hope with me for 4 years. Allan is also Chairman of Friends of New Hope Australia so it was important that he see the changes too. Unfortunately Allan badly damaged his left shoulder,  had surgery and is fine now, we are planning...
