Event Details

BBQ, Fundraiser Auction, Guest Speakers, Food Stalls, Kids Activities (including a jumping castle :o) and lots of Fun activities for the whole family! Most importantly you will be helping to provide support to families who are suffering without food or shelter!

The main objective of this event is to raise funds to help the displaced and destitute Rohingyan people who have fled Myanmar to Bangladesh fearing for their life and safety. Latest news suggests more than 400,000 Rohingyans have crossed the borders from the state of Rakhine to Bangladesh in the last three weeks.The number of Rohingyan refugees is increasing and Bangladesh is struggling to meet the refugees’ basic needs for clean water, basic food and shelters let alone their dire need for counseling to cope with the terror that they have experienced and witnessed in the last few years.

The second objective is to lobby both the government and the opposition to send more aid to the Rohingyans who are traumatized, hungry and left feeling helpless. To date, the Liberal Government have committed to giving only five million dollars for these refugees despite their rising numbers.
