The Lyone Foundation was very happy to donate $10k to Pillars of Strength (POS), a unique charity providing support to grieving fathers in our community. Often the wellbeing of the father is overlooked when a child is ill, or tragically passes away. In these times of crisis, even the strongest Dads need support.
Pillars of Strength operates across the east coast of Australia offering peer support, respite and assistance to grieving fathers. Since its inception in 2011 POS has assisted over 3,500 fathers who have either lost a child, or have a sick child.
POS will direct these funds toward covering the cost of accommodation for families with a child in neonatal intensive care and support “timeout” support network events for fathers across the East Coast.
