Housing Choices Australia - Managing Director, Michael Lennon, this week presented HCA Drill Hall resident and MS sufferer, Bobby Bajram, with a cheque for $7,500 from our Resident Community Fund to support the Bobby Bajram Mount Everest Disability Climb in April 2018.
"I've already climbed four of the world's tallest mountains," Bobby said. "When I made it to Everest Base Camp in 2015, I looked up, pointed my finger at the mountain and said; 'its your turn'!
"I train 32 hours a week. On average I'm confined to a wheelchair for five months of the year. My doctors say I could die up there...but I don't think so."
Bobby is such a powerhouse he now has over 90 sponsors helping him fulfill his dream, including an international satellite company that will follow his Mt Everest Climb and stream it live! We will keep you posted about that. But here is what he had to say about Housing Choices:
"You house me. You give me a home to live in. I couldn't do any of what I do without that. Every night I go home to you. You might not be there when I get home, but in a way, you're like my family. "
Every year Housing Choices Australia asks you our residents to fill out a satisfaction survey to help us find out what is working well and how we might improve our service delivery in the future.
You will soon receive this survey in the mail or via email, or SMS - and we would appreciate you completing it by Friday, 7 July - 2017.
The survey is completely anonymous, so you won’t have to give your name. We encourage you to take the time to fill out this survey and if you need help with completing it, please call your housing officer on 1300 312 447.
