Maari Ma Aboriginal Health Corporation has helped the PCYC finish a drop-in room and buy more sporting equipment.

Rowena Marks, PCYC Broken Hill Club Manager, said they have received generous support from Maari Ma.

“It helped us to complete our Youth Hub drop-in room and purchase new scooters and sporting equipment,” she said.

“The idea is to help us promote physical activity and a healthy lifestyle at the club for children aged 5 to 17 years.

“We are very grateful to receive this support and sponsorship from Maari Ma.”

Rowena said the sporting equipment would be used for the ‘Freestylin’ Friday’ events and in the drop-in room.

“Maari Ma also sponsored our Youth Case Manager’s Swimming and Fitness Police program,” she said.

Maari Ma’s Manager for Community Engagement Kaylene Kemp, said they were happy to provide the support.

“Maari Ma is fully aware of the support that the PCYC provides to a large number of indigenous youth,” she said.

“Their programs promote physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.

“It’s about promoting and prevention, especially with youth.

“There isn’t much available for indigenous kids.”
