India and the COVID crisis

Statement from the Multifaith Advisory Group

Helping India from Australia

"In this time of pandemic crisis, we are drawn to be compatriots of folk in India". 

"Our Indian Australian sisters and brothers are a major community in our successful multicultural Australia. We feel with them, and for them, as their relatives and the Indian population face the current COVID crisis. ...we compatriots offer our prayers and meditations from our unifying ethic of compassion".
