When Disaster Strikes


Thank you for your support!

Schools Ministry Group (SMG) aims to be proactive in its support of children, families and communities with a Chaplaincy Service at the time of natural disasters and critical incidents.

When Disaster Strikes has been especially effective in the bushfire crisis of late 2019/early 2020. More than 25 Pastoral Care Workers (PCW) were deployed to care for families and communities in recovery and relief centres. The PCWs were highly praised for their warm and compassionate care to everyone in those centres. Also partnering with SA Housing Authority and Red Cross, SMG sent out its PCWs visiting the people affected in and around the fire scar.

We need your help to provide this vital service to children and families across metropolitan and regional areas of South Australia.  

$165 gives families PCW support for a day after disasters and critical incidents.

$1080 unlocks resilience training from PCWs during difficult times for a school community.

A family at Kangaroo Island spoke of Conrad, the only PCW in the island, “Conrad has journeyed with us through our uncertainty, loss, grief and recovery. His support is pivotal to the school and the community and we are grateful for him.”

Schools Ministry Group and When Disaster Strikes Program Partners Beyond Bank Australia and Paradise Motors Mazda, have made it possible for this program to support communities in times disaster and crisis.
