Material Aid

Gifts for Manus and Nauru provide material support as able to the people at Manus and Nauru. This includes assistance with goods purchased locally in PNG and Nauru where available or sent as parcels from Australia; assistance with vouchers for food, clothing and other items; and paying for other necessities and expenses as needed.

Parcels sent from Australia are personalised parcels for individuals and families in Manus and Nauru, made up of items which are the highest priority for the person/family.

Items commonly requested include: clothes, shoes, toys, baby care items, books, art supplies, toiletries, dental products, educational and entertainment devices (eg. mp4 players, tv, games, e-readers), mobile phones, food, and medical and exercise equipment.

If you are interested in putting together a parcel for an individual or family, please email or contact Ali Murdoch on facebook ( to discuss.

Donations to help pay for parcel items and postage and other material support can be made by direct deposit into our ‘material aid’ bank account:
