Roll of Honor - Robin Adamson (d. 2015)

For many years, Robin Adamson was a much valued active member of, and leader in the Nedlands Uniting Church Refugee Group. As well as supporting the group financially, Robin regularly visited refugee families in their homes.

She graciously accepted their hospitality and reciprocated by inviting them to her apartment in Nedlands. She had the gift of quietly relating to people from very different backgrounds.

Although Robin was highly educated, refugees did not feel intimidated in her presence. Her manner was unassuming. Robin was kind and made time to accompany refugees when they had Centrelink or medical appointments, that often involved long waiting periods.

Robin respected cultural differences and encouraged refugees as they endeavoured to adapt to a very different environment. She quietly assisted refugees for many years and despite disappointments her non judgemental and positive attitude was evident. The gift of discernment enabled Robin to encourage others assisting refugees. Her wise counsel was especially encouraging when feeling discouraged.

Robin Adamson is greatly missed by refugees and those supporting them. Accepting her induction certificate is Mrs Wendy McCallum from Graduate Women WA
