Marta Dusseldorp moved by true hearts

22/09/2014

Leaving the theatre and TV sets behind, Marta Dusseldorp got real in the Northern Territory with Save the Children last week when she connected with Aboriginal children living in remote communities.

She’s played some incredible roles in her 20-year career as an actress, and is perhaps best-known as Sarah Adams in the television series, A Place to Call Home.

Now, Marta Dusseldorp is very much playing herself as Save the Children’s new official Ambassador.

Driven by her concern for the challenges facing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, Marta and her family took some time out to learn more about the realities for children living in some of the most disadvantaged places in Australia.

Visiting a Playscheme in one community, she discovered first-hand how Save the Children is helping vulnerable children grow, learn and develop through play and support.

“Save the Children’s Playscheme is a fully functioning, practical, on-the-ground outreach to communities and their children,” said Marta – who spent lots of time playing and laughing with the children at the Playscheme.

“They’re giving kids up to five years old a reliable and structured learning experience that sees the kids running towards the bus as it arrives and waving happily as they leave.”

“The incredible team at Save the Children are intelligent, passionate people, dedicated to children.

“The smiles are contagious. The goodwill is enormous. The hearts are true and they are working together to create a sensitive and nurturing beginning to these children’s lives,” she said.

Marta also experienced the daily ride to school for Aboriginal children living in remote One Mile Dam and Kulaluk communities, getting up extra early to join the children on the bus run, which ensures children get to school every day as part of our school attendance program.

CELEBRATED actor Marta Dusseldorp has signed on as an ambassador for Save The Children and it’s turned out to be an educational experience not just for her.

The A Place To Call Home actor took her two daughters — Grace, seven, and Maggie, four, and husband Ben Winspear to visit remote indigenous communities in the Northern Territory.

“My daughters made new friends and will no doubt be talking about this experience for a long time to come,” Dusseldorp told Confidential.

“It’s been fantastic to travel here with my husband and two daughters, who also went on the daily bus run and took part in the activities with children from the Northern Territory.”

Dusseldorp, also known for her work on Crownies, spent the past week visiting the communities of Bagot and Belyuen, checking out Save The Children’s Intensive Supported Playscheme that combines structured activities with play for children aged up to five.

“Save the Children works with communities and their families with such first hand cultural understanding and whole hearted compassion. They have also been so welcoming to me and my kids,” Dusseldorp said.

“Inside Save the Children it feels like an extended family and a home. Save the Children has been working for more than 10 years in the Northern Territory. It has grown and is becoming stronger than ever. They give back to community, employing from communities, with the community, bridging gaps and helping people maintain and connect with their culture.”
