Charity Begins at Home
We are currently still in the midst of social distancing, and most of us are restricted to staying in our home. But though the majority of us are wallowing in boredom, there are those that are not as fortunate. Single parents, socially isolated elderly, refugee groups, and temporary visa holders. These groups are facing significant financial hardship due to the current economic situation, but they have missed out on receiving government aid.
That’s why, to help alleviate the burdens during these testing times, Good Neighbours Australia is launching a new domestic campaign. Its mission? To distribute hampers to those in need. The hampers will each contain food supplies including instant noodles and other basic necessities like hand soaps.
Good Neighbours Australia has partnered with Daesang, Nongshim, Kago Australia and Rainbow and Nature to create this campaign. Daesang and Nongshim are two of South Korea’s largest food companies and have generously donated five hundred boxes worth of food supplies, including mouth-watering instant noodles. Meanwhile, Kago Australia and Rainbow and Nature are also generous businesses, and are the force behind the warehousing and hand soaps.
Good Neighbours Australia is prioritising single-parents, families with children, temporary Australian visa holders, and anyone who is not eligible for government support. Due to limitations, this campaign is currently only set to operate within the Sydney region. Stay strong Sydney!
