Diversity Award

diversity award for BOCEP

We were surprised and honoured to be announced recipients of the Gippsland & Cardinia Regional Diversity Awards in recognition for the work we are doing to raise awareness and support for the orphan children of South Sudan.

Our Executive Director, Abraham Maluk, spoke beautifully about the plight of the orphan children, drawing parallels with his own childhood. He spoke of his dismay at finding the children destitute and impoverished on his return to South Sudan after 23 years in exile and reminded us all of the pressing need to give these children a future.
