Juliet ('25) Embodies Faith and Philanthropy on Humanitarian Mission

In an inspiring display of compassion and dedication, Juliet C, a Year 10 student from a multi-generational St Margaret's family, recently embarked on a life-changing journey to Kyampsi, Uganda.

In an inspiring display of compassion and dedication, Juliet C, a Year 10 student from a multi-generational St Margaret’s family, recently embarked on a life-changing journey to Kyampsi, Uganda.

Juliet joined a 33-person humanitarian tour, known as Mission Abundance, to support the work of the Kyampsi Childcare Ministries who provide support to vulnerable children, deliver community health programs and provide access to education and childcare services.

Juliet’s family have a deep connection with the village of Kyampasi, having supported the charity for the past five years.  This was Juliet’s second humanitarian aid trip, having attended with her family including her sister Annabelle (’23) in 2019. 

While on the tour, Juliet was a part of the Care Team, providing fun games and activities for the children living within the Rehabilitation Centre.

She also provided support to a Medical Camp, by processing around 700 men, women, and children, for free healthcare from medical professionals, including dental, optometry, and general medical services. As the town has very limited access medical resources and advice, the Medical Camp provides critical support to improve the community's health and wellbeing. 

 As the trip drew to a close, Juliet and her fellow volunteers ventured to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, nestled on the Uganda-Rwanda border, where they spent time with the iconic Mountain Gorillas, famously known as the Gorillas in the Mist.

Juliet's remarkable commitment and natural affinity for early childhood education were recognised when she received an award from the group.

Juliets Grandmother, Anne Muggleton (’56), expressed how proud she was of Juliet and her committement to making a positive difference in the lives of others. In particular, Anne shared how her willingness to wholeheartedly engage with the community and the children exemplified the values of St Margaret's and the Sisters of the Sacred Advent.

"I have been reflecting on how proud I am of Juliet. She did an absolutely wonderful job. She flourished, showed compassion, and showed so much care for the children,” Anne said.
