Baptcare’s Belinda Wandabwa takes home Captain’s Award

Baptcare Karana Community Manager and Director of Nursing, Belinda Wandabwa, recently won the Captain’s Award at the National Celebration of Outstanding African Australians.

The Captain’s Award is presented to shining stars within the African Australian community. It recognises individuals (or teams) who have made an outstanding contribution in community services, business, sports, media, law or health sectors.

Belinda was nominated by an anonymous member of the public and given the award for her passion to make a difference, not only in the aged care environment but with her ongoing work in engaging and mentoring youth who may be at risk or are vulnerable.

Belinda said she was very surprised that she was even nominated and that she was still in a ‘daze’ after the win.

Michael Wilson, Baptcare General Manager for Aged Care Operations said her hard work, professional excellence and humble dedication to purpose are worthy of celebration.
