MAY:

On 22 May, 2016 IMP Graduate, Zibeon Fielding is set to take on an epic challenge – a 62km run from his remote community of Mimili to Indulkana.

The ultimate goal is to raise $50,000 for The Purple House – Western Desert Dialysis. The money will be used to help get the doors open at the first remote dialysis unit on the APY lands – Pukatja/Ernabella SA.

Opening in 2018, the new dialysis unit will provide much needed ‘on country’ dialysis for Anangu people.

Indigenous people from remote Australia are being diagnosed with kidney failure at unprecedented rates and without ‘on country’ treatment options, dialysis patients are forced to relocate Alice Springs or Adelaide – many miles from home.

Please help  Zibeon reach his fundraising target and help save the lives of Indigenous Australians.
