We have been pondering this question, what is Christmas?
An unplanned pregnancy, a lack of support from friends & family, a child born out of the traditional family model and a whole lot of lack of resources.
This is not the typical image we create of Christmas, but it is a reality and highlights a societal issue that has always been relevant. When Mary found out she was pregnant, her community made judgements and cast her aside. Our mission is to be the practical support for women who have been judged, coerced, mistreated and told they simply weren't good enough.
This Christmas, we challenge ourselves to look beyond our own family and to reflect on those who aren't sitting beneath a decorated tree. However, thanks to the generosity and kindness of our supporters, our women will be unwrapping presents that you have gifted them and their children.
A Merry Christmas to all of our kind, compassionate supporters, we could not have done this year without you. We hope that you enjoy this festive season and take some time to rest before the new year!
Much love from the Diamond Team
