Australian Shadow Minister for Community Safety, Migrant Services, and Multicultural Affairs Jason Wood presented a motion to Australian Federal Parliament to support Sri Lanka, yesterday (5).
Presenting the motion, MP Wood said the current economic crisis in Sri Lanka is propelling towards a humanitarian crisis, with shortages of food, medicines, and other essential items.
“The economic crisis has also affected Sri Lankans living in Australia. Various charity programmes underway in Australia to provide assistance to Sri Lanka. Several fundraisers are being carried out in Australia to assist Sri Lanka with much-needed medicines and equipment, such as “Save a Dream Team” and “Ride for Apeksha” which is organised by DS OBA Victoria in partnership with Rotary Australia,” he said.
