A Message from MCC's Director (Volunteer) Jeannie Mok OAM
Happy Easter to all our friends. It usually is a time to celebrate with dear ones, with an excuse to over-dose on chocolate eggs and bunnies! Sadly, given the present circumstances experienced globally, Easter will be more a time of quiet reflection and meditation, especially for the Christians, acknowledging the supreme sacrifice that their God made for mankind. Thus, for all of us from different faiths, do enjoy close bonding with one’s immediate family at home, without ANY social distancing required and keep safe, everyone!
International Women's Day
MCC's Director (Volunteer) Mrs. Jeannie Mok OAM attended the International Women's Day reception hosted by the Queensland Premier. At the reception she met Dr. Robert Anderson OAM also known as Uncle Bob, a Ngugi Elder from Mulgumpin, Quandamooka South East Queensland. An empowering day for women across the world.
