The Stella Bella Little Stars Foundation was launched in 2012 to brighten the lives of children in the ACT region who are living with serious and long-term illnesses. The charity offers support and assistance to these children and their families who are in tough situations.
The team from COS Canberra nominated Stella Bella as its charity of choice in 2017, donating $10,000 through the Lyone Foundation. This money allows the small and dedicated committee of volunteers to continue providing joy and support to children and families affected. This may be through counselling and conversations, or more practical assistance, such as the provision of petrol and food vouchers, small grants for medical equipment, and measures to relieve families of financial stress in what is a very difficult time.
