Christine Okoth

Case and Services Coordinator

My role with Melaleuca provides one-on-one support to people engaged in our Family Harmony and Communities for Children Programs. On a daily basis, I help clients seamlessly integrate into their new way of life by assisting them with parenting, capacity building and connecting them with vital mainstream services.

I was drawn to working with Melaleuca due to my four years’ experience as a humanitarian aid worker in the Dadaab Refugee Complex (Kenya), where I coordinated, planned and implemented psychosocial programs, did case management and resource mobilization for the thousands of refugees and asylum seekers living there. One of the many things I learnt from this experience was to never take freedom, independence and family for granted – I dream of a world where social justice is upheld and everyone can live in safety and dignity.

Outside of work, you’ll usually find me having a good time with family and friends, going to community events or travelling.
