Helping International Students affected by COVID19

As you know many international students have lost their job due to COVID 19. Many of them are in hand to mouth situation as they are not able to pay their rent and fees and are not able to return to their home country due to restrictions imposed.

Our club has taken an initiative to help these international students by providing them with free grocery baskets, free medical consultations and hot foods.

We are preparing and distributing groceries  boxes to needy international students on regular basis. We have already helped more than 250 students and demand is growing.

We are in process of setting up a panel of medical practitioner which will providing free consultation to needy students. We have already helped number of students at his practice by providing free consultation and free medicine to the needy students. We are also developing an online portal through which students will be able to contact our club for medical support.

Our volunteers are also preparing hot foods at a Kitchen in Parramatta and distributing them to the needy students.
