Dr Hodgkinson Receives Award from Philippines Consul General

8 Dec, 2016

Dr Hodgkinson was recently asked to give a presentation on Operation Restore Hope’s more than 20 year charitable commitment in the Philippines at The Consulate General of the Republic of the Philippines in Sydney. The presentation was part of the Philippines celebrating National Volunteers Month with the theme “Volunteer for Sustainable & Inclusive Development”. The event held at the Consulate coincided with the Biannual Meeting of Filipino Community Leaders.

Dr Hodgkinson’s presentation outlined not only the achievements of Operation Restore Hope but also the critical nature of collaboration with our Filipino partners both in the Philippines and here in Australia over these many years to make this work possible. It is only in working together that we can provide optimal outcomes on the ground that can be sustained in the long term.

Dr Hodgkinson was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for his presentation as well as his and Operation Restore Hope’s ongoing work for less fortunate children in the Philippines with cleft lip and palate and other birth defects and deformities who without charity would go unaided.
