As a GP Jo understands more than most the importance of sanitation and hygiene to health outcomes.
In 2019 Jo signed up to a gruelling bike ride from the Spencer Gulf in SA to the Gulf of Carpentaria in Qld.
Taking in 2200 kms, Jo’s grand bike ride raised $14,000+ to support Wantaim PNG’s work in community led sanitation and feminine hygiene management
In February 2018, young Brady who lived in Singapore turned 1.
Brady’s family planned a big party to mark the occasion and all his closest friends were invited.
Brady told his parents he had more toys that he needed and would instead ask his friends to donate to his first and favourite charity, Wantaim PNG!
Brady’s birthday bash was a hit - everyone came to celebrate.
Forfeiting his first birthday gifts, Brady and his friends raised $1000 which he generously donated to Wantaim PNG.
