Loreto House Charity
The Carevan Foundation helps to feed the homeless and disadvantaged of rural Australia. The founder of Carevan, Dr. John Brabant has worked as in orthodontist in rural Australia for almost 30 years. After reading an article in the Border Mail entitled "It's easier to turn away than to care" about the homeless and the disadvantaged people in Albury Wodonga and Northern Victoria, he decided to take action. The Carevan Foundation aims to create a sense of identity, a sense of belonging and a sense of achievement in those less advantaged in our society. The Foundation is focused on changing "us" and "them" to become "we". Carevan in Albury Wodonga has become an icon, a symbol that this community cares, and that a community through a strong volunteer network can fight hunger and poverty. "Sometimes a feeling from the heart becomes a jigsaw puzzle that is meant to be put together". Carevan runs a number of programs to support its cause.
