Faith fuelled care
In 1987, Fazal Cader was working as a commodity trader in Sydney. Mr Cader was successful in the field he had chosen and was living a comfortable life without a great deal stress.
That was until ‘Black Monday’ hit. Black Monday is the name given to Monday, October 19, 1987, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) dropped by 508 points (22.6%), and on which similar enormous drops occurred across the world. The Black Monday decline was the largest one-day percentage decline in stock market history.
Haylie is one of those people who perseveres and shows strength of character while overcoming trials to achieve their full potential.
Haylie came to Wesley Vision Valley as a Sponsored camper through the Operation Hope program in 2005. She was removed from her mothers care in 1999 due to issues of neglect, substance abuse and mental illness from her mother. She was moved from placement to placement until settling into a permanent placement for over 3 years.
A Place of Her Own
It’s a sad irony … although she hates them, hospital wards have been home to Sophie for a lot of her adult life. Now, Sophie is taking a fresh approach with her mental illness – she’s got a place of her own.
Sophie is afraid any doctor she sees will harm her. Hospital corridors that disappear to who knows where scare her. The vials and syringes on the trolleys reinforce her nightmares. But her history of violent behaviour has often meant that police have taken her to those places she fears the most.
