VCC Emergencies Ministry CWA Support

CWA Support

Carol Clay, along with Russell Hill, have been missing since they vanished while camping in the Wonnangatta Valley on March 20 last year.
A recent breakthrough in the Police investigation has led to a suspect being charged on two counts of murder, and human remains being discovered, that are yet to be formally identified. 
The Country Women’s Association (CWA) which Carol was a prominent member of, has requested VCC Emergencies Ministries to provide support where needed to members of CWA both locally at Carols club in Pakenham and also State-wide to the approx. 4,500 members of CWA.
