The biennial World Congress of Families is being held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, from 10-12 August 2009. The Congress will bring together around 4,000 scholars, academics, policy makers, elected officials and activists.

The Netherlands won the right to host the Congress through a promise that its libertarian government would not interfere with the pro-life, pro-family Congress program.

In order to ensure Australia is represented at the Congress by Teresa Martin, President of Cherish Life Queensland, formerly Queensland Right to Life (QRL), several people have had to go significantly out of pocket in booking a flight and accommodation package. At this short notice, generous AD2000 readers are invited to help defray these costs.

For further clarification, interested readers can contact me on (07) 3847 3413.

Teresa is tireless in defence of life from conception to the grave. She was sent by QRL in 2007 for a week long intensive course at the Leadership Institute in Virginia, with 85 adults from 31 countries, to learn techniques for lobbying politicians, dealing with the media, and pro-life awareness raising. Teresa also participated in the March for Life in Washington DC (see photo).

Donations can be sent to Cherish Life Queensland marked (WCF), PO Box 1382, Toowong BC, Qld, 4066. Tel: (07) 3871 2445.

Donations will be acknowledged on the Cherish Life website:
