About the project

The present pastoral ministry of Coober Pedy Inland Mission has many different aspects. It involves ministry within the town ship of Coober Pedy, the surrounding cattle stations which extend into Northern Territory and the peoples and communities comprising the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) lands.

This project aims to support Aboriginal communities in the area by providing much-needed resources, including bedding, clothing, food and cool drinks.
