“Not being able to help people enough scares me. Not being able to get the things to help people, because that’s what I live for. It has kind of already happened during Covid; we have kind of been there. The lack of supply, lack of support to help enough, not being able to do what I am saying I am going to do. It kills me. It worries me. There are some people really hurting. You can’t take away the pain of what they’re going through but we can help them with stuff. If we can help with stuff, then they don’t have to worry about that. So, we try to be a little bright part in their week, do the best we can. But the inability to help would scare me. If for some reason, we would have to stop helping, I would find a way. I don’t care what it is, I would find a way. I have been taught this all my life. It’s a family thing, I grew up helping people. My mum and dad pioneered this and then just lead by example. If we hear of somebody that doesn’t have dinner, we go and take them dinner. It’s just who we are. My life has always been Island Care. Island Care is Kangaroo Island for me—that sounds weird, but it’s my passion. I’ve worked here for a long time but I love being here. Island Care isn’t a place you come to, it’s a lifestyle, it’s happiness.”

I am a German living in South Australia. We lost our home and farm in the Kangaroo island summer bushfires. I love travelling, reading, beach walks, board games, watching movies and spending time with my family.
