When Debbie came across the ADRA program in Gatton, she was in need of more than a meal. She was looking for a sense of community. “I was a drug addict for 48 years,” Debbie says. “I was always rejected from society, being a heroin addict, bikie, gangster, whatever you wanted to label me. ”After feeling like an outcast her whole life, Debbie began volunteering with ADRA. And here, she finally found a place she could call home. Donate to the ADRA Appeal today at adra.org.au/shine and you can help others like Debbie find a supportive community.
