Relief boxes for students

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Taylor Bridge, Qld, has developed a new community support program for overseas students studying at our universities and colleges. These students pay full tuition fees as well as rent, travel, food and other necessities, and would normally hold down jobs waiting tables, serving drinks and many other vocations while studying.

Unfortunately, most of these establishments are currently closed and international students are not entitled to any financial relief from either federal or state governments.

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Taylor Bridge decided to support these students with the introduction of an International Student Food Relief Project. Members pack the boxes at Cilantro Fresh, Corinda, ready for distribution through Unidas Somos Mais Fortes – Together We Are Stronger.
