COMMUNITY SUPPORT

RED OHMS Group is pleased to provide support to the following community programmes:

  • OHMS Hygiene donates to the Murlpirrmarra Connection , a not-for-profit organisation that provides Aboriginal youth in the remote communities of Wiluna, Leonora and surrounding regions in Western Australia, with educational opportunities. They deliver programmes that are designed to support Aboriginal students throughout their years in secondary school, and are culturally appropriate with the aim of ensuring young men and women are prepared for their transition beyond school, into tertiary  tudies, training and employment.
  • OHMS Hygiene donates to World Vision's Australia Programme, supporting Indigenous Australians through the East Pilbara Early Childhood and Development Project.
  • OHMS Environment sponsored the Road to Lisbon charity cycle ride departing Celtic Park, making the Portsmouth to St Malo ferry and cycling the west coast of France and the Pyrenees before entering the Iberian Peninsula, and arriving in Lisbon. The charities benefiting were Children in Crossfire, Celtic FC Foundation and Solving Kids Cancer.

Elaine has also worked with Workplace Health Without Borders,   travelling to Vietnam to teach the Basic Principles Course in Hanoi, and helping with setting up the Australian branch.
