Supporting Oxfam

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care provider based in the Sydney greater metropolitan area and Hunter Central Coast of N.S.W, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in N.S.W, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families. PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

We are always interested in hearing from those passionate about making a meaningful difference for a child in foster care or a family requiring assistance.

How you can help

Tens of thousands of Australians take a range of actions in support of our campaign work each year. By taking action now, you will be helping to raise the voice of disadvantaged communities around the world.

We can help Oxfam today in a number of ways:

Just a $20 donation can provide families in Timor-Leste with vegetable seeds, increasing nutrition and market opportunities.

A $100 donation is enough to provide medicines to one village in Laos to treat common illnesses and prevent disease.

A $500 donation can provide a water harvesting system to supply clean water for 200 families in drought-stricken southern Africa.

If you prefer, you can even shop at one of Oxfam’s stores around Sydney or online. Oxfam Shop has a variety of items for every budget, including home décor, kitchenware, food and drink, accessories and more.

You can also make monthly donations to aid Oxfam’s program work in struggling communities.

Support Oxfam and you support the communities that most need our help
