Ulladulla View Club members recently heard about a group that gives a voice to the voiceless.
Julie Kelly from Destiny Rescue spoke to Ulladulla Evening VIEW club members about the work Destiny Rescue does to help rescue children from sex trafficking and sexual slavery.
Rescued children are taken to safe houses where they sleep safely, receive education, vocational training, counselling and healthcare, spiritual guidance and, most importantly, love.
Protection is another step and Destiny Rescue also cares for at-risk children, often siblings of rescued girls – until they are of age to find safe employment or higher education.
The organisation also empowers through education and skills training, and give a voice to the voiceless.
Julie displayed some of the beautiful jewellery that’s been handcrafted by the Rescue and Prevention girls from around the world.
Ulladulla Evening View Club is a small, but friendly group of women meeting for dinner and a coffee morning each month.
The group encourages women in the Milton and Ulladulla area to join and listen to interesting speakers and take part in activities.
VIEW Club is a national charity and part of a network of 320 clubs Australia wide which help make life-changing differences to local children and their families through the ‘Learning for Life’ program.
The club meets on the second Wednesday evening and last Saturday morning of each month.
During the club’s 25th anniversary year, members and friends published an entertaining book of local stories and verses titled A VIEW from the Heart.
Some of the stories are historical and some are hilarious. The book is available at the Harbour Book for $24.95.
Funds go towards the educational support of disadvantaged children through the Learning for Life program.
