Can you see the aerodrome?
Dry! dry and more dry!
God's beautiful clouds
Volunteer with Grace
Co-pilot Grace doing checks
Grace and Maggie now at school
VH-UWG ready to fly
Over 7 and 1/2 years since there has been rain here
Another outback town to visit and outreach to drought affected families
Another town desperate for water, and rains
Volunteers loaded ready to go further outback
All roads lead to the same outcome-dry parched lands
Here comes UWG again, so let’s get to the airstrip, so we can help unload.
Grace ready to help, Grace by name and nature
Mum and new baby getting to know each other
There are no Early Childhood services in this town
All hands on deck to help, as UWG has arrived to help us with all our learning.
Mum said, “I need a LOT of help, to get ready for big school”. I am two years old.
How would you like to drive over this road for 5 hours to get to the nearest town?
We sure made it, and all is unpacked so we can now go to the shearers’ quarters to sleep.
Mum phoned UWG and they said, “they would come and help us”, and they did, many times.
What would UWG do without the local helpers, who refuel the aircraft, help us tie it down, drive us around, and have time to help out in so many different ways!!!!
like doing all the messy play, and making things. When UWG came we made them a banana cake, and I picked a rose from the rose bush, but I can’t tell you this because I can’t speak, and UWG helps me to learn. When I go to Sydney they visit me there too.
Here I am again, but this time we have come 14 hours by train, so that I can have physio, speech, and orthopaedic help. Mum has brought me to Sydney, and guess who turned up? You guessed - UWG, and they took me to the beach, which I had never ever seen.
Time to say goodbye to mum, dad, station assistant, and the four children after lots of learning, and much fun, and socialising. However we are leaving toys, puzzles, books, clothes, crafts, and beauty items for mum to treat herself, and dad too. We look forward to you coming back to our home soon.
Shearers’ quarters are waiting for us, including snakes, outside shower and toilet without any roof, and a generous helping of dust and flies to go around. REMEMBER CITY SLICKERS to leave your good clothes in the city!!!!
