Griffith researchers collaborated with community Elders to develop practical ways in which they could assist in the restoration and revitalization of remote Aboriginal communities.
Griffith researchers worked with the people of Doomadgee to enhance the quality of life and wellbeing of families. Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians provided furniture, toys, clothing, household goods, books, bikes, food, toiletries, linen and many other items to the Doomadgee community for distribution to families in need. Staff and Elders assisted families without access to basic living resources. The project also helped provide travel and accommodation for a number of families who left the community for medical assistance.
