Uncle Wes and Community
traditional land owners and their elders, in our beautiful country., Australia. It is with our indigenous people's assistance that our communities have grown to what and where we are today. Our 'Thank you' day.
We should'nt lose our own original culture as people from other countries and cultures move into our lovely Mount Druitt community, where people care.
The beaut thing about the Mount Druitt Reconciliation Walk, it is organised by both Indigenous and non-indigenous community members, who have the compassion to make this day successful. Todays event was looked at as a 'Cancelled Event' with the rains coming in the morning, but as I always say, 'God works in mysterious ways'. The sun shined throughout the day from 10am onwards and funny enough I remember that has happened for one or two years before.
There were plenty of community store open to showcase what they do to help out our communities, as follows:
Ability Links NSW program works with people with a disability, their families and carers to bring true inclusion in community life.
