From the report:
THOUSANDS of Aboriginal children in remote communities are still waking up to no breakfast nine months after the $1.5 billion federal intervention, Galarrwuy Yunupingu, the Northern Territory's most powerful Aboriginal leader, has warned.
Mr Yunupingu, a former Australian of the Year, called for the intervention taskforce to urgently build missionary-style dormitories in the communities where children could be fed, clothed and cleaned.
He said he would not shy away from criticism the dormitories would be a return to the days last century when missionaries ran the communities.
"The missionary days were good," Mr Yunupingu said. "The missionaries looked after the kids much better than the Government does today."
Christian missionaries saved the lives of many aborigines and continue to do good work today. We should keep praying for them and for the people they are trying to serve.
