Why Mai Wiru Foundation?
The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation is a non-profit organisation that was created by Founding Director and film maker, Damon Gameau. In Damon’s award-winning ‘That Sugar Film’ (highest grossing documentary in Australia), there is a section dedicated to sharing the sad truth about the lack of nutrition and consequent early deaths that are prevalent in the APY Land indigenous communities.
Our Foundation is raising funds to support upcoming projects in order to educate and improve the health of these community members, and consequently help to save lives.
We are looking for someone who shares our passion for this cause and can volunteer a small period a week to create 3 social media posts relating to indigenous health and general wellbeing, along with assisting with copy for our monthly newsletters.
We will be launching our ‘Palyaringkuntjyaku’ (towards Wellbeing) crowdfunding campaign in May and would love your help with this too!
