Women’s Health Weekend

Ewingar was devastated by fires in October and November of 2019. Red Cross volunteers and the bushfire clinician working with community have identified a need for a dedicated women’s health event.

The event will be run across two days:

  • Day 1: art therapy workshop for maximum 15 women.
  • Day 2: a day to focus on health and wellbeing, featuring a masseuse, manicurist, new underwear, fiction books, local health nurse, gift packs, roast lunch and desserts, plus door prizes.

Ewingar was one of the worst affected areas in NSW during the bushfire season of 2019. The Long Gully fire claimed two lives, destroyed 44 homes, and burned through more than 74,000 hectares of bush and farmland.

While women make up a small percentage of the community of Ewingar (33%), all 23 female residents are over 45 years of age. Twelve of these women fall in the older age brackets of 55–74 years. Older women face specific health concerns as they age, and a safe space to recharge and connect with other women and health support services in their community is much needed. Most women access health services in nearby towns such as Grafton or Casino. There are other older women living in surrounding areas who would benefit from a dedicated health day.
