LEAD­ERS IN MAK­ING

Comment News (Armadale) - - Perth Children’s Hospital -

RE: “Sally pulls back from the brink” on the front page and Vivi­enne Steur “Suf­fer­ing must stop” on page 18 of the May 22 edi­tion; what amaz­ing women th­ese are, Sally for 'fight­ing her demons' and want­ing to reach out and help oth­ers by becoming qual­i­fied in psy­chol­ogy, Vivi­enne for re­spond­ing to peo­ple in poverty who are hun­gry.

Th­ese women are lead­ers. It is a sad re­flec­tion on our gov­ern­ment that it is not lead­ing in pro­vid­ing ad­e­quate so­cial sup­port ser­vices for peo­ple, leav­ing char­ity groups or in­di­vid­u­als to do the work. Drug ad­dic­tion and poverty can hap­pen to any­one, to peo­ple like you and I. Sally and Vivi­enne, you are com­mu­nity lead­ers in the mak­ing. EL­IZ­A­BETH KELLY Ken­wick
