Children First Foundation Event – Government House
Little Chiara, you are taking us on adventure that’s for sure. What a beautiful morning, meeting Anne and the team at Moira Kelly’s Children First Foundation. They helped to fund the special needs equipment for Chiara, you can see her story in their current newsletter. We met the Governor of Victoria, the CEO and amazing staff from Children First Foundation who made us feel so welcome. And we also bumped into one of Chiara’s doctors – Dr Michael Johnson from Royal Childrens Hospital who has been working with Chiara since she was a few weeks old!
So uplifting to meet the amazing Volunteers, Professors, Doctors, Ceo’s, Philanthropic Groups, Surgeons and most of all the Children themselves, some who have flown in from war-torn countries to seek medical assistance here. These children are incredible, their sense of spirit so strong, yet their stories heartbreaking… like Kashmala’s, she was injured when a bomb exploded as she walked out of her local church in Pakistan. As a result of her injuries, Kashmala’s leg was amputated and her other leg sustained serious injuries. Yet meeting her, you would never of guessed the amount of trauma she had experienced, she smiled with so much love in her eyes.We felt very grateful to be a part of such a special occasion, Chiara had a ball, smiling away at people she would meet… then it was back home for some therapy in the afternoon… what a special day…
