Good Deed

Gift the gift of health and support

Remote Indigenous people in Central Australia are up to 30 times more likely to suffer from kidney disease?

To receive dialysis treatment, families must move off their country and go to Alice Springs or Darwin. When this happens, communities are often left without elder leadership, families are broken and culture is weakened. Patients also suffer from isolation and depression, restricted by a dialysis machine for their foreseeable future.

Purple House is an innovative Indigenous-owned and run health service operating from its base in Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.  Operating 18 remote clinics and a mobile dialysis unit called the Purple Truck, Purple House works to get patients back home so that families and culture can remain strong.

The charity not only provides treatment and care, but social support, education and employment via their Bush Balms.

Help get more Indigenous patients back home to remote communities across the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia for remote dialysis treatment. Every dollar helps to keep strong culture and families together – it literally changes lives!
