Abel Mcgrath tees off for Blue Dragon chil­dren’s char­ity

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

ABEL Mcgrath Leed­erville and Su­bi­aco di­rec­tor Adrian Abel said some­times we be­came so wrapped up in our own lives that we did not no­tice the hard­ships that oth­ers have to bear.

This year one of his goals for his busi­ness and team is to en­sure there are op­por­tu­ni­ties to give back and sup­port oth­ers.

“At Abel Mcgrath we as­pire to be the best cor­po­rate cit­i­zens and fel­low hu­man be­ings that we can be,” he said.

“There­fore we will be or­gan­is­ing a num­ber of op­por­tu­ni­ties dur­ing the year for us all to ex­pand our think­ing and meet some in­cred­i­ble peo­ple who are punch­ing way above their weight.”

They held their first event last week, host­ing a break­fast at the Wem­b­ley Golf Course with Michael Brosowski, founder of the Blue Dragon Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion.

The foun­da­tion is an Aus­tralian char­ity work­ing with chil­dren in cri­sis in Viet­nam.

Their aim is to res­cue chil­dren from dan­ger, re­unite them with their fam­i­lies when they can, and pro­vide all the ser­vices needed for re­cov­ery and growth.

So far they have sent 4106 chil­dren back to school and train­ing, built 86 homes for fam­i­lies, res­cued 573 traf­ficked chil­dren, and handed out 63,024kg of rice.

Abel Mcgrath spon­sored the break­fast and made a do­na­tion to the foun­da­tion. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.blue­dragon.org. ■
