Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : April 8th 2009
20 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, April 9, 2009 MB NEWS BRIEFLY 'Sting Kevin Rudd twice' THE head of an Ashfield-based charity is urging people to ''sting Kevin Rudd twice'' by donating some of their $950 stimulus bonus to charity -- and then claim a tax deduction. The reverend Bill Crews (pictured), who runs the Exodus Foundation, said charities have been hit hard by the economic downturn. Among the services provided by Exodus are free meals and food parcels, as well as free medical and dental care for the needy. ''We do this work simply because it has to be done -- thousands of people rely on us,'' Mr Crews said. ''I'm urging people not to forget the ongoing need of the poorest in our community. Their need is with us 365 days a year, but charities like my Exodus Foundation can only help them if the public continue to support us.'' Free vaccinations NEW parents are being urged to take advantage of NSW Health's offer of free whooping cough vaccinations. All new parents, grandparents and people in regular contact with newborn babies are eligible for the free vaccination from their GP. Sydney South West Area Health Service has been notified of 727 cases of whooping cough in Sydney southwest so far this year (until March 24) compared to 964 cases for the whole of 2008. Deadline for young gals YOUNG women have limited time to start their course of three free cervical cancer vaccines before the looming June 30 deadline. The injections are free to females aged between 12 and 18 who missed doses during the school program and women aged between 18 and 26. Adult women must start the course -- which includes three doses -- before they hit 27 and before the cut off date to get the free vaccine, otherwise they will have to pay $450. A total of 720 woman a year are diagnosed with cervical cancer. The injections, which help to protect women from developing the disease, are available from general practitioners.
