Commissioned by the Forde Foundation in October 2018.


“Thank you for very much for the Forde Foundation. I’m also thanking your beautiful staff for the help and understanding towards me and my family. This makes me feel very lucky and fulfilled, as a young boy from a Home. As you get older, things get very hard and serious sometimes, plus with the responsibilities of being a dad. What you’ve done has put a ray of light on me. It has given me hope. For a man with four daughters, it’s helped me a lot.”


“Thank you so much for approving my dental request from the last round of grants. My treatment is ongoing and not long to the finish line. Queensland Health Dental at Yeronga have been amazing and I am so thankful for your help.”


“We would like to express our appreciation towards the Forde Foundation and its staff for ongoing assistance to buy necessary items for our comfort and well-being so we could remain in our home. Hope there will be further dealings with them in the future.”
