Family Values Awards Presented in Perth, Australia

PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Australia awarded three local community leaders Family Values Awards for their service to Australian parents and children. The awards, presented at Perth's Warwick Stake Center, recognized the role of Catholic Archbishop Barry Hickey, Dr. Hamza Amira of the Western Australian Islamic Council and government leader Cheryl Edwardes in improving the environment for families in the community. Archbishop Hickey has worked for many years supporting those affected by many of society's greatest challenges, including unplanned pregnancy, family breakdown and drug abuse, says the Church's public affairs director in Perth, Philip Baker. Dr. Amira was recognized for his role in supporting families in Western Australia through many years of active community involvement. And Mrs. Edwardes, who is a member of the West Australia state parliament, is active in community causes and has supported family and moral causes in the legislature. The Church started the Family Values Awards program in 1995, recognizing the efforts of 17 community leaders during that time.
