Governor-General returns to our Casuarina Remote Laundry

Last week, we welcomed the Governor-General of Australia His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) and his wife, Mrs Hurley to our Casuarina Remote Laundries project.

The visit provided the opportunity to showcase the project’s growth since their visit in 2021 and discuss our plans for expansion across the NT over the coming three years.

"Their Excellencies are always lifted by projects with clear results being achieved."
Office of the Official Secretary of the Governor-General

Since 2019, the Remote Laundries project has:

  • Spun over 40,000 cycles
  • Injected $595,000 into the Remote Laundries communities
  • Provided 100% Indigenous employment, creating 44 jobs
  • Seen a 60% reduction in scabies presentations and 0 new rheumatic heart disease cases in the pilot community of Barunga
  • Made savings of $6.01 for every $1 of the healthcare budget
  • Opened in 4 locations with 6 more scheduled to open in 2024.

To assist us in hastening our expansion across the NT so every community who wants a laundry, can, we welcome individuals and partners who want to join us on our journey!
