South Sydney Rabbitohs help spread the message of Project Compassion
22 Mar 2017 | Blog | Australia | Project Compassion | About Caritas
The South Sydney Rabbitohs have been spreading the word of Caritas Australia’s work and Project Compassion.
Caritas Australia’s Program Coordinator for Africa, Sister Ivy Khoury, who is a passionate South Sydney supporter, has struck up a friendship with the NRL club’s coach Michael Maguire. The pair recently spent time with students at St Brigid’s Catholic Primary School in Coogee, passing on footy tips and teaching the children about the importance of helping the poor.
Sister Ivy, other Caritas staff members and one of our First Australians partner organisations, the Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation, also attended a recent South Sydney training session at Redfern Oval. The meeting gave the players a chance to hear stories of the Stolen Generations from the Kinchela men, including Uncle Richard Campbell, whose story is a feature of Project Compassion 2017.
