Women for Challenge
Founded in 2001, the Women for Challenge Committee aims to support and improve the quality of life for mothers caring for a seriously ill child.
A life-threatening illness in a child can lead to an overwhelming sense of helplessness among parents. Mothers often struggle with the day-to-day family responsibilities while caring for their sick child, which places enormous stress on the family and can upset the family equilibrium.
The Women for Challenge program offers a network and community for mothers who find themselves in difficult circumstances. It aims to provide mothers with the opportunity to:
- Manage their feelings in supporting their sick child, siblings, and spouse/partner
- Socialise with other mothers who also have a sick child, allowing them to share and relate to one another
- Find time for themselves.
- Enjoy experiences that unite the family and allow quality time with each other.
