Assistance Required


Nazareth House in Ballarat is about to commence a major redevelopment.  Our community has an increasing need for aged care accommodation, for those where home based care is no longer possible. Four wards built in the 1960s are to be replaced with a total of 85 new beds, in a modern facility specifically designed for Aged Care needs.  It will be impossible to fund this $21M building without substantial community support. An initial brochure outlining donation options is attached. We need your help!   Don Moss, Appeal chairman
