The inagural African Australian Awards were held on the 25th of August at the Sydney Opera House. Flinders University Lecturer Dr Lillian Mwanri earned well-deserved recognition for her work in settling African migrants, and her study of health and social issues affecting them.
Dr Mwanri received a Champions Award which she believes recognises and celebrates her hard work, and the work done by all those who endeavour to build strong and stable communities.
She told Breakfast Producer Bill Walter about her work and the ongoing issues faced by African migrants.
