Zonta Club of the Adelaide Hills
Breast Care Cushions
District 23 Project
The Zonta Club of the Adelaide Hills supports the District 23 Breast Care cushion project. The Zonta Breast Care cushions provide comfort to women (and men) in the post-operative phase of breast surgery. Cushions are distributed to Adelaide and country hospitals in conjunction with other Zonta clubs as a District 23 project. Distribution in hospitals is by Breast Care Nurses. Throughout the year Zonta Clubs in this District and others in Australia hold sewing bees to make these sought-after cushions. The feedback received from recipients has been positive, with one woman noting that receiving the cushion was a turning point for her in helping to change her outlook and feel more positive.
Zonta Breast Cushions are provided as a community service, for women,
The cushion is used for support
protection while shopping or from pressure of a seat belt, and for comfort.
They are made by members and friends of Zonta Clubs.
