Droplets in The Stream Charity Recognised In State Parliament

July 8, 2019 Business News No Comments Email Email

The Queensland based charity, Droplets in a Stream (DIAS) were recognised in State Parliament for the incredible work they have done protecting children in Uganda and bringing children to Australia for life changing surgery.

Supporters and partners of DIAS including South African Airways (SAA), were invited to the Queensland State Parliament by The MP for Moggill and Shadow Cabinet Minister Dr Christian Rowan to recognise their achievements.

South African Airways and Virgin Australia have combined efforts over the last 2 years to support DIAS in flying children and carers from Uganda to Australia to receive life changing surgery which was performed free of charge by surgeons in Newcastle and Brisbane.   In addition, in March this year SAA also sponsored flights for one of the World’s leading neurosurgeons, Dr John Christie, to fly from Australia to perform up to 40 surgeries in Uganda.

The recognition follows the broadcast of an SBS Dateline documentary called ‘How To Catch A Witch Doctor’ which focused on the work being undertaken in Uganda by Peter Michael Sewakiryanga with the support of Rodney Callanan of DIAS to protect vulnerable children.

Trent Malcom, South African Airways Sales Manager for Queensland who has worked closely with the charity over the last two years and has seen the terrific results from both trips said “SAA are incredibly proud to be able associated with Droplets in the Stream and look forward to continuing the partnership to help change the lives of these children.”
