Communities for Communities is about fostering relationships and bringing communities together. With the support of the people of Canada Bay, we have hosted numerous community events and fundraised more than AU$2 million since 2002.
These funds have built houses, schools, and community facilities in disadvantaged villages overseas in Thailand, Philippines, South Vietnam, Indonesia and Fiji. Additionally, the proceeds have funded paediatric physiotherapy hours, a playground and now a hydrotherapy facility at Lucas Gardens School in Five Dock.
Those involved with Communities for Communities have shared the prosperity of supporting and connecting with other communities. "The proceeds of our work go beyond our community but the benefit stays here" - Lance Brooks, Founder.
The City of Canada Bay Council is pleased to support Communities for Communities. As Former Mayor, I am particularly proud to have had an opportunity to work with a dynamic and vibrant group that does so much to help our local community and other communities in need. Lance and all the dedicated volunteers at Communities for Communities let their actions speak for themselves, and I encourage you to do what you can to join their efforts.

I have known about Communities for Communities for a number of years, but only really gotten involved in the past four years through local events, overseas volunteer trips and recently, the committee. What I love most about C4C are the relationships I have made both with our community here and those overseas.
Maddie Woods - Committee Member
As parents, we are very happy because this is a blessing. I know my number one responsibility as a parent is to provide a house for my kids, a sanctuary. With a home, someday when I'm gone, they will have a place to live. So I'm very grateful for this kind of help. From my own salary, I earn just enough for us to eat, so building a house is beyond a dream. We are so grateful. You may think it isn't much, but for us, it is amazing.
