Amazing work, beautiful woman ⭐️

Such a great cause! When I worked in remote Queensland we would fly patients out and they couldn’t return home on the commercial plane as they had no shoes! Not the first things on our minds while they were laying on a RFDS stretcher!

Amazing Nikia!

You're a super star!
