Marulu Strategy – Making FASD history!

“FASD does not only impact an individual’s social and emotional development and their capacity to learn and interact effectively within society, but in a place such as Fitzroy Crossing, built on histories of oral inheritance and extensive family interconnectedness, it threatens their entire cultural and social cohesiveness.

In order for this community to reconstruct itself, all of its children, with and without FASD and their families, must be surrounded with love and be nurtured with sensitivity and responsibility.June Oscar, CEO of Marninwarntikura Women’s Resource Centre, has said a “collaborative circle of community care” must be established.

In responding to specific needs within the Fitzroy Valley, in 2009, the Marulu Strategy Leadership Team, in collaboration with The George Institute for Global Health and Sydney University, agreed that a prevalence study was needed to document the extent and nature of FASD in the Fitzroy Valley.”
