Shout out to the Australian National Maritime Museum
A BIG shout out to the Australian National Maritime Museum who have been joining us and Brothers in Need for the Homeless Program. The Museum staff volunteer with us and donate warm clothes and blankets for distribution to the homeless. It is rewarding and humbling to be of service to the community, particularly those who are having it tough. The Australian National Maritime Museum staff are now regular supporters and volunteers in the Program.
The Museum is not just about Maritime history, but is for example a living acknowledgement to all migrants and refugees that have come to Australia in search of a better life. The museum welcomes refugees and other new arrivals to Australia with an inscription on a special wall – The National Monument to Migration. The Monument stands in honour of all those who have migrated to live in Australia with their registered names engraved in bronze. They also have regular exhibitions on various subjects.
Check out their website HERE or better still visit the Museum at 2 Murray Street, Darling Harbour.
