An important reminder of the power of compassion.

Recently named 2017 NSW Australian of the Year, Sudanese child soldier and refugee Deng Adut has overcome adversity to become a lawyer and advocate for the disenfranchised. 

Now helping refugees in Western Sydney, Adut’s story is an important reminder of the power of compassion and what can happen when we open our doors and hearts to those fleeing war, persecution and trauma. With Meri Fatin.

A tale beyond remarkable. SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
