Moira Kelly is an Australian humanitarian worker. In 2001, she was awarded the Order of Australia in recognition of her humanitarian service to both the Australian and international communities.
Moira has also been named Victoria of the Year twice; in 2003 and again in 2012.
Moira has personal experience caring; as adopted mother to Ahmed and Emmanuel who were born with physical disabilities, and as legal guardian to twins Krishna and Trishna, formerly conjoined twins from Bangladesh.
"It's important for carers to know that there is help out there for them, but also for people to realise that anyone anytime can become a carer."

Comedian, writer, broadcaster.
Edgy, polished and inventive, Charlie Pickering is one of the most exciting names in Australian comedy. Charlie is a political junkie, former lawyer and was the voice of his generation as a regular team captain for Generations X on Network Ten's quiz show Talking 'bout your Generation.
He is probably best known as the co-host of The Project on Channel Ten.
But what you may not know is that Charlie is also deeply committed to social justice issues, and passionate about making a difference.
Which is why he is an Ambassador for Carers Victoria, helping to raise awareness of the issues of young carers.
I was staggered to learn that there are approximately 2 to 3 young carers in every classroom. We need to make sure that young carers are given every opportunity to achieve their full potential.
