Through it all, Krissie remains optimistic and determined to get the job done.
“Despite the exceptional difficulties many of these children have experienced, they have an awe-inspiring resilience. Our day-to-day job is to do whatever we can to help these children have bright, healthy and safe futures – and more immediately, to protect them from the extreme weather as best we can.
“I recently went home to Melbourne for two weeks for a break. I noticed attention is fading from the Rohingya crisis, yet this is still a huge humanitarian catastrophe. Now the monsoon season threatens to magnify the suffering of hundreds of thousands of girls and boys caught in the middle of this crisis. Anything I can do to shed a light on that, I will do,” says Krissie.
