Oracle Global Volunteer Day @ the Children First foundation in Kilmore by Amin Abbas

In what has become an annual event, more than twenty volunteers from the Oracle team volunteered in a working bee at Moira Kelly's Children First Foundation farm in Kilmore. For the 3rd year running, the red team contributed to a great foundation that helps the disadvantaged children from all around the world. Children First is an Australian foundation that facilities advanced medical treatment to children in Australia where such operations are inaccessible in their home countries. Such operations are often life changing to these young kids.

The Oracle team work involved gardening and maintenance activities at the farm. The energetic red team replanted the veggie patches it has built couple of years ago, an activity that has been reserved for Oracle every spring.

The team also painted 2 bedrooms, cleaned all windows and cleaned and sanitised the children’s play area. The work also involved weeding, clothes sorting and tidying up of some of the children’s rooms.

As per every year, we also presented the resident children with some gifts and books, Thanks to Kate Ogilvie who arranges for the gifts every year.

The foundation's resident volunteers enjoyed lunch with the Oracle volunteers, and thanked the team for their contribution and ongoing support.

Many Thanks to all our volunteers for the hard work and the great team work spirit the demonstrated. Almost everyone last line to the farm kids and volunteers was, “see you next year!”.

Regards,

Amin
