Diplomatic recognition

Today's Jerusalem Post gives a mention to an upcoming in-Israel event in support of the Malki Foundation's work. It comes from Greer Fay Cashman's regular Grapevine column:
[T]here will presumably be quite a number of Australians gathered at the residence of Australian Ambassador Dave Sharma early next month when he hosts a by-invitation-only evening in honor of Keren Malki, named for Melbourne-born Malki Roth, who in 2001 was the teenage victim of a terrorist attack. Malki had been very attached to a severely disabled younger sister, and to honor Malki and her devotion to her sibling, her parents created the Malki Foundation as a fitting legacy to her memory.
Keren Malki is dedicated to helping families who keep their disabled children at home in a happy and loving environment. Malki’s father, Arnold Roth, will be the guest speaker.
Ever since their arrival in Israel, Sharma and his wife, Rachel Lord, have embraced humane causes. In some cases they have become personally involved in working for these causes, and in others as well as the ones they work for, they have opened their home to enable the message to get out to a wider public...  [Grapevine, Jerusalem Post, August 20, 2015
