Lockdown 5.0 Recommendations

On top of 10 months of lockdowns, Melbourne is now in its fifth lockdown.While we may be in the same storm, we are not in the same boat.

“We are not all in the same boat. We are all in the same storm. Some have super-yachts. Some have just the one oar. And some are drowning” – Damian Barr

For some, lockdowns bring us closer to our families, community and purpose. They are a time for reflection, to think about others.

For some another lockdown has meant the loss of a job and livelihood to put food on the table. Some face another lockdown isolated, living alone. Some face another lockdown in unsafe housing. For our charity partners abroad, the situation is a different ball game all together.

As we ride out this storm, we continue fight to support some of the most vulnerable in our world.

Following today’s announcement that Melbourne’s lockdown will be extended, we thought we’d share some recommendations if you’re looking to pass some time:
