Rondinne's story is a tale of courage and inspiration. Born in Sri Lanka, Rondinne moved to Kuwait with her family when she was four. She had lived there for 15 years when Saddam Hussein's army invaded. Rondinne and her family fled Kuwait, travelling through Europe before arriving in England where they lived for a number of years before coming to Australia. If you would like to Rondinne's remarkable journey, or any other podcasts in this series, you can find them on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or through Council's website by visiting our people's podcast.
