Caroline Chisholm: the emigrant's friend

Australia, 1992

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This incredibly energetic and intelligent woman stands out as one of the few women who have been recognised throughout Australia’s history. She was called a saint in her own lifetime. Caroline Chisholm pioneered migrant welfare and helped the most disadvantaged groups of all; the women and children, the poor and uneducated, the ignorant and the persecuted. She achieved more in her lifetime than almost anyone else in our history.
