The Moira Kelly Creating Hope Foundation builds on Moira’s decades of work caring for sick and needy children and their families. It provides comfort, hope, protection and safety to children and families who need it most.
Moira is renowned for her work bringing to Australia children with serious health problems that local doctors are unable to treat. Her Foundation continues this work by providing support for children and displaced women from overseas and from our own community here in Australia who have not been able to receive help elsewhere. She takes on causes that everybody says no to and she says of her work, “There’s no saying no to hope.”
Ultimately, Moira works to help children and families help themselves, so they can be as fully independent as possible and live full lives in the community.
Moira’s work is funded almost entirely by charitable donations. Her Foundation manages a home in inner suburban Melbourne where the most needy children and families are housed and provided with medical care and support. It is staffed entirely by volunteers.
