The Muslim Women’s Association of SA would like to congratulate the Governor of South Australia, His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, on his extended appointment.
The Government of SA Government House website is an official source for the biography of the Governor, we will instead speak only from personal experience.
His Excellency has been a friend to our organisation, graciously attending and speaking at milestone events.
When our office relocated to our current location in the Flinders University building, His Excellency cut the ribbon during the auspicious ceremonial opening.
Earlier this year, at our Silver Jubilee Celebration for Service Providers, His Excellency gave a particularly insightful and moving speech where he expressed his gratitude and pleasure regarding the community services provided by MWASA for the settlement and wellbeing of refugees, in light of his own lived experience as a refugee.
Governor Hieu Van Le is an admirable role model, not only for refugees but indeed for everyone, a symbol of how much a person can raise themselves above dire circumstances through integrity, humility and generosity.
MWASA would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank Mrs Le for her strong history of community involvement and support.
His Excellency and Mrs Le are charming guests on top of being absolute pillars of the South Australian community, we look forward to continuing our friendship with them and can hardly wait to see what other positive projects and progress the future brings.
