Dr Julie Monis-Ivett OAM

Charter member Julie Monis-Ivett was recently awarded an OAM for her work in the humanitarian sector through health support programs. In her words it is very humbling and she is very proud.

The OAM covers her involvement with Zonta, the Birthing Kit Foundation (BKFA) and MHCDASA, the organisation that supports the work in DR Congo of Dr Luc Mulimbalimba, the guest speaker at all 3 Zonta District conferences nationally in 2016.

As Julie mentioned “It has been an inspirational and rewarding journey starting in 1999 with the Birthing Kit Project. It has been a privilege and a joy to work with the teams of dedicated and inspirational women in Zonta, then the Birthing Kit Foundation and MHCDASA.

Being a member of Zonta was the key to everything.

Her life is so much fuller having Zonta in it.
