Servants Health Centre – 10 Years of Compassionate Care

Sunday 11th October @ 1pm
Replayed Friday 16th October @ 5pm

Servants Health Centre is not your typical medical practice. Located in the heart of Dunedin, this small clinic is quietly helping the most vulnerable by providing free care to the homeless and those who are struggling financially. The clinic, which is also a registered charity, operates through a team of dedicated volunteers.

This podcast has been created to commemorate the centre’s 10 th year in operation. What is it that makes this clinic so special? And why is the centre having such success? This podcast will answer those questions and many more.

Migrant Motherhood

Tuesdays @ 10:30am

We want to talk about motherhood- the sticky, icky, challenging and sometimes very rewarding experience of raising children in the 21st century.

Migrant Motherhood looks at what it means to be a mum, moving with our children through the stages of life, across the city, Aotearoa and perhaps the world. Kiwis and immigrant mothers like myself have a range of diverse experiences worth sharing and share some big universal challenges and joys.

Let’s give the invisible load a voice.
