The past few months have wreaked havoc on so many peoples’ lives.
Sandra and Steve turned to Vinnies for help after struggling with mounting debt, due to paying for Sandra’s parents’ funerals, Steve needing heart surgery and being unable to work, and the costs of his medication. Sandra is also the full time carer for one of their three children, who is living with multiple disabilities. The cost to replace a worn out fridge on top of all this debt nearly broke them - it was also when they turned to Vinnies for help!
With the help of a qualified Vinnies Financial Counsellor, and generous donations from the public, Vinnies was able to provide help with outstanding bills, food, and support to address their ongoing stress and debt. Sandra and Steve are now debt free and have a plan to move forward, with hope for a brighter future.
