New members

The Oakleigh Evening VIEW club welcomed two new members, Loreta and Jo, last night. It was great to give them their membership badges. 

Our guest speaker Joan, from Mercy Ships, recounted her experiences when volunteering on the ship when it was in Libya. 

Our members were amazed to see the doctors’ work in restoring very damaged people back to a normal life. The ship stays in the same place for 6 months and over that time the doctors truly perform miracles. 


Are Welcomed
