‘Oh Carol’ part 1 – Length 05:47

This woman is a real hero. If any of us had the tough start to life she had we would have stumbled at the first barrier. But not Carol.

Carol  was brought up by foster parents.  For the last twenty years she has lived in the streets and parks of busy inner suburban Glebe.

There is a lot that happens around the world we cannot control. We cannot stop earthquakes, we cannot prevent droughts, and we cannot prevent all conflict, but when we know where the hungry, the homeless and the sick exist, then we can help.” 

– Jan Schakowsky
