Supporting others - SMUK Volunteer Programs

Volunteer workshops -St John of God Mental Health


So rewarding to be able to  share some of  my skills and love of  flowers with the beautiful patients at  Pinelodge Mental Health  Clinic .

The room is always a ray of sunshine and the pure joy of such an achievement is heart warming .

Special thanks to our local supplier who generously donates flowers once a month to help make this happen ..

Next workshop is in June - help is always welcome .

Volunteer Conservation Project - Thailand 2019


Special moment at the temples with the stray dogs and being able to support  Projects Abroad and the other volunteers to build a temporary fence to keep the dogs safe from the busy road .

It was wonderful to help these animals and a to know that the small donation will keep these beautiful dogs feed for the next 4 months and contribute towards veterinary treatment .

Humbling and heartbreaking at same time - some great work is being done for these unwanted animals ..

Over Easter I packed by bags and headed to Thailand to work on a conservation project and was so amazed at the connection with these and ground staff  volunteers and just a genuine passion for helping with no expectation  -amazing work 

Outreach Programs


 Lovely afternoon attending  the outreach program for World Childrens Day with St Kilda PCYC at the Prahran commission flats .

So wonderful to see the amazing work first hand that the volunteers achieve. It was a great oopportunity to  meet some of the youth  on the St Duke of Ed Award Trip in April 2019 .

SMUK Foundation is so thrilled to be part of St Kilda PCYC which is grass roots and the genuine passion to help support and mentor these youth who need some help is a  wonderful goal .
