Kiri Hata - Recognition on International Women's Day 2018 for her work with migrant and refugee families in our community
Kiri Hata has achieved Star Profile with the Alcohol and Drug Foundation for her dedicated work with Community Drug Action Teams (CDAT).
Kiri was nominated by a peer,
“Kiri is a vibrant contributor, whether passionately advocating for the needs of multicultural communities or making us laugh with the warmth of her personality. She’s not content to make her contribution just in words, and whether it be running consultations with community members or educating refugee background youth on staying safe around drugs and alcohol, Kiri is always willing to use her extensive knowledge, experience and skills to help migrant communities.
A dedicated member ever since the CDAT was first set up, Kiri even takes the trouble to come to meetings during her days off!
One thing that is immediately obvious when you do a project with Kiri is how she has touched the lives of many community members, who respect and trust her and so feel comfortable talking even about sensitive issues like drug and alcohol misuse.”
