For the last few weeks Larrakia Nation staff have been delivering masks to our members. Have you got yours yet?
To keep our Larrakia members safe, we’ve been dropping off a 50 pack of masks to all members in Darwin and Palmerston because the mask mandate isn’t going to end anytime soon and keeping members safe is our priority. Distributing masks was something practical we could do to help people stay safe.
Yasmin Good has been delivering the masks through the Hosts program at Larrakia Nation, and said people are happy to receive their masks, and are grateful to have more masks delivered.

Focus on members
