WHAT IS ANAEMIA (WEAK BLOOD)?
Weak Blood (anaemia) is when the body doesn’t have enough iron in the blood to grow the
muscles, brain, organs and bones. Weak Blood is common between six months and three years
(this is a time when babies/kids grow quickly) and during pregnancy.
WEAK BLOOD IS SERIOUS & VERY IMPORTANT!
Your child needs regular check-ups at the Clinic.
Weak blood can damage the brain.
Weak blood can delay normal motor functions (movement).
Weak blood can delay mental development (thinking & learning. skills)
Signs of weak blood:
• Sometimes there are no signs at all!
• No energy, weak, tired, cranky.
• Slow mental & physical development.
• Decreased immune function: child is always sick.
Eat foods that have lots of iron in them. Eating iron rich foods
with vitamin C allows the body to take in more iron.

NEW YEAR’S EVE AT THE MEMO - Fancy dress - no theme! Dare to be wild!

“And to ensure remote communities
benefit as much as possible, Jemena
is also investing in training programs,
Indigenous apprenticeships and a new
Indigenous social enterprise in Ten-
nant Creek to provide support services
for construction and road maintenance
projects in the area.”
The Northern Territory has an esti-
mated 200 trillion cubic feet of gas –
potentially enough to power Australia
for more than 200 years - although the
first supplies of gas to sustain the pipe-
line would come from existing offshore
and onshore gas reserves.
The pipeline, expected to be com-
pleted by 2018, has not brought joy to
Environment groups have vowed to
try and block the pipeline over fracking
They say it would drive dangerous
fracking gas fields across the Territory.
Naomi Hogan from Lock the Gate Al-
liance NT said the NEGI pipeline was
nothing but a gas giveaway to wealthy
overseas companies that wanted to frack
the land and send gas offshore.
“Fracked gas is expensive, risky and
facing increasing scrutiny and bans
across Australia and the world,” she
“The construction of this pipeline is
far from guaranteed, with high levels
of community opposition to gas field
fracking and an NT election looming.”
Arid Lands Environment Centre
(ALEC) director, Jimmy Cocking said
Jemena’s admission about wanting the
pipeline to fast track gas fields across
the Territory was a scary prospect to
the vast majority of Territorians who
wanted to protect land, water and com-
munities from dangerous fracking gas

Tennant to Mt Isa
IN THE LINK: Jemena will build the NEGI across the Barkly
from Tennant Creek to Mount Isa.
Language is always at the forefront of all
programs and projects carried out at Papulu
Apparr-Kari – “the Language Centre”.
Other than the daily translation, recordings,
interpreting, booklets, dictionary, cross culture
and language lessons, language is used to get
the message across to all of our clients.
This they do by having local language
speakers working on all of their consultations
with community members and having all
information concerning programs translated
into the languages of the community.
Some of Papulu Apparr-Kari’s (PAK) current
programs are aimed at improving school
attendance to ensure that our children are able
to get a better education to enable them to be
able to read and write the languages of their
parents and grandparents.
PAK’s current programs are the Remote
Student Attendance Strategy (RSAS) and the
Parent and Community Engagement (PaCE)
The Language Centre is always endeavouring
to revive, restore and retrieve the languages
of the Barkly and hope to continue developing
new and innovative ways to widen the use of
the regional languages for many years to come.
They welcome visitors to drop in and see
the work that is being done to benefit the
