Pulling together gets results

Full credit to Delphina Albert and her partner Darren Gregory for undertaking the trek to find help for Duncan Mick, and for Duncan’s son Hilton for keeping his father alive through his knowledge of ‘‘ bush tucker’’ and ‘‘ bush medicine’’ – he did a great job, they all did a great job.
The story tells us that in the face of adversity if we stick together and act like a team we can overcome, we can win. SHAUN NEWMAN,
