As a parent and member of the community I didn’t think I could leave this child on his own.The Pride of Australia medals, awarded by the Herald Sun newspaper, acknowledge Victoria’s unsung heroes. Ms Kontaxopoulos, a social worker at the Alfred hospital, is nominated for her humanitarian efforts in helping Black Saturday burns victims. While attending to other children Ms Kontaxopoulos also cared for a badly burned six year old boy who was orphaned by the fires, the Herald Sun reported. The boy eventually died as a result of extensive burns and serious internal injuries and Ms Kontaxopoulos organised a funeral for him at the hospital. “As a parent and member of the community I didn’t think I could leave this child on his own,” Ms Kontaxopoulos said. “It was a very personal thing for me and I can’t say how much it affected me”.last_img read more
