Selina Win Pe one of the survivors of the infamous Lindt Café Siege in Sydney in 2014 visited Canowindra last week and stayed with Tommy Jeffs at Montrose House.
Since the siege Selina has battled Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for 4.5 years.
Selina wanted to find a way of giving back to Australians who have helped and supported her since the siege.
It was in early March of this year that Selina decided to jump in the car and leave Sydney, and see the effects of the NSW drought first hand that she had heard about through the media. After her travels she contacted the CEO of Rural Aid Australia Charles Alder and wanted to know how she could help.
Selina then identified with the help of Charles, two programs that she would get behind.
• The Buy a Bale Program
• The Gift of Music Program
While she was in Canowindra she met with Cowra Council and also delivered hay bales to farmers in need at Cumnock.
On 1st June Selina launched a new website www.selinawinpe.com.au which shows all her travels around the state.
