10th Anniversary Fundraiser
Join us to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Adonis Musati Project
Positive and inspiring feedback from the Peer Counsellor Support Programme has galvanised the McWalter family into action. They are aspiring to new heights in a drive to raise much needed funds for the Adonis Musati Project, and will attempt to Mount summit Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in October 2017, to plant a flag for AMP!

He had spent a month at the Home Affairs Refugee Centre, trying to get a work permit, reportedly with nothing to eat, sleeping in a cardboard box.
