In the 2014, preferring adventure to a leisurely break from work and study, Blackburn Clinic’s Dr Janice Kreltszheim, and her 15 year old daughter Natalie, spent 16 days on a remote island in North East Indonesian doing volunteer work. They joined a small team from World Share, an Australian-based development and mission organisation that connects overseas partners with local supporters.
Janice and Natalie went to the island of Halmahera, and joined a local organisation called Hohidiai which has a medical centre (including an outpatients clinic, small hospital and infectious diseases wing), a bilingual primary school, an orphanage, and which runs medical worker training, as well as adult English language lessons.
