Our Sydney Neighbours Need Your Help

COVID-19 has changed millions of Australian's lives. Sadly, as a result many of our neighbours have been struggling with declining mental health and wellbeing. That's where our Winter Warmer Hamper comes in.

Who are we helping and how will we do it?

Continuing our mission in supporting the most vulnerable, Good Neighbors Australia intends to use secured funding from Multicultural NSW to deliver hampers containing essential food and hygiene items to the Burmese community in Sydney.

On top of the pandemic, they also have increasing concerns over the current political situation in Myanmar.   

To help our neighbours, the Winter Warmer Hamper's aim this year is to ease the mental stress of the Burmese-Australian community.

What's more, on the day of distribution we will also be hosting a lunch for the community to come together under a safe space and connect with each other. We hope to reduce their loneliness and social isolation, while enhancing the sense of belonging during this challenging time.

Winter Warmer Hamper 2020 Review

Last winter in 2020, we were fortunate enough to be granted funding by Multicultural NSW, where we launched our first Winter Warmer Hamper campaign. We distributed food and hygiene hampers to over 100 recipients.

We collaborated with reliable partner organisations: WASH House and the Khmer Community. Both organisations are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). 

WASH House is another local non-profit organisation. They are a women’s community resource centre based in Blacktown, Sydney. Out of respect to the sensitivities the communities may face, Good Neighbours Australia delegated the distribution of the hampers to WASH House while our team collaborated with the community leaders of the Khmer community in New South Wales to deliver the rest of the hampers.
