We are very excited to announce that Annabelle and David were yesterday awarded Medals of the Order of Australia, an incredible and humbling honour. They are so proud to receive this recognition and are very grateful for the ongoing support of their Board of Directors, staff and volunteers across Australia and Uganda, their families and friends, as well as loyal sponsors and supporters across the globe.
