Grateful mum skydives with her family worker to raise funds for Red Hen

By 7th September 2022September 9th, 2022No Comments

Red Hen family worker Maria David has always wanted to challenge herself with a skydive.  Wanting to push herself outside of her comfort zone has been part of her 40th birthday plans for some time.

When Szuszanna heard, she was inspired to join Maria – and raise funds for the charity that has been such an important part of her life.

“Red Hen means a lot to myself and my family. Since I had my two boys now age 8 and 11, we have had our fair share of challenges as a family. Bonding with the boys did not come naturally. I suffered from post-natal depression and psychosis and was admitted to hospital after giving birth.

Thanks to the lovely staff in the hospital I recovered, but when I was discharged, I felt lost and had no confidence in my parenting ability. My family lives abroad (I am originally from Hungary), and I was isolated. I am so grateful to The Red Hen Project, and I’m not sure where my family and I would be right now if it hadn’t been for their help.”

Please help Zsuzsanna, now a nurse at Papworth Hospital, reach her target of £500 by sponsoring her HERE
