Beat the heat - Aboriginal Families
The good thing about our mob is the closeness of family and community and get-togethers. Just like everyone else our mob can suffer from the heat which causes our body to lose water and we can become sick from heat cramps, heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. We need to look after those in our families and community who are more at risk like small children and older people especially if they have heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and if they take certain medications.
It is therefore a good idea to prepare for the hot weather before it arrives.
