Hi, my name is Simone, and i’m currently serving in SFC NSW (City-Bankstown). I transitioned into this ministry in 2015 from YFC Campus-Based. I currently work and volunteer for St Vincent de Paul Society in Sydney.

Back in 2014, I was given the opportunity to visit some of the villages in the Philippines which ANCOP assists during a YFC Oceania Great Adventure Tour (OGAT). Through this social ministry and immersion, I was able to see how the charity supports many families and their children by funding their education and providing work opportunities.

I was able to witness the great difference it makes in their lives. I also felt the joy and love when I was welcomed by some of the families -- despite them living a very simple life and not having a lot of the things which many of us take for granted.

This experience is something that I’ve kept close to my heart, and I have decided to help give back by making a commitment over the next few months to help raise money as an ambassador. By supporting ANCOP, we are making a difference as it allows them to continue their mission and amazing works across the Philippines, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.

“We should strive to keep our hearts open to the sufferings of other people, and pray continually that God may grant us that spirit of compassion which is truly the spirit of God.”

- St Vincent de Paul
